Allowing Readers To Contact You (without revealing your email address)

Posted on Jun 12 2007

When surfing around loads of different lenses every day it seems that whenever I want to send a lensmaster a note about something, they don’t have any way to be contacted!

There is an easy way, and you don’t have to reveal your email address to anyone. Not even to the spammers, and not even to your best friend.

Here is how to add the little ‘Contact Me’ link under your bio which creates a form for people to fill out to contact you.

1. When you are logged in click My Dashboard at the top of the page.

2. Scroll down to find the heading ‘Email Settings’.

3. Look for ‘Allow Contact?’, then press ‘Change’ to turn it on!

And that’s it!

You will now see a little ‘Contact Me’ link under the bio on each of your lenses. You won’t be able to click it because you can’t contact yourself, but if a visitor clicked it they are shown a form to use to contact you with. Whatever they write is then sent to your registered email address, and you can then reply (nd reveal your email address to them) if you wish to have a bit of a chat with them.

If you don’t have ‘Contact’ enabled you’re missing out on some valuable feedback from other lensmasters and interaction with your visitors!
