Adding a follow button

  1. I have people wanting to follow my blog but tell me they have to sign up via email. Is there a way to add a follow button? Can you also explain what RSS feeds are? I'm new to this. Thank you!
    Blog url: http://whyilovebooks.wordpress.com/

  2. 1. You can set up email subscriptions by using this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/follow-blog-widget/

    2. If you would like a follow button to appear on the bottom right hand corner of your site for those who do not have WordPress.com accounts see here >

    3. You can set up a customized contact form http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ on a static page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ or in a text widget http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/ and above that form you can ask those who wish to have their email address "captured" to use it.

  3. 4. All WordPress blogs have multiple built-in feeds. http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/

    This is the URL for your RSS feed for posts
    http://whyilovebooks.wordpress.com/feed/
    This is the URL for the RSS feed for your comments
    http://whyilovebooks.wordpress.com/comments/feed/

  4. 5. On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the Learn WordPress.com blogging Tutorial prepared by Staff. http://learn.wordpress.com/
    The support documentation is all found at the Support link http://en.support.wordpress.com which is also on the bottom of your Admin page.

  5. Thank you. If people want to follow my blog, are they only able to follow via email? I have been following other blogs with Google connect. Is there a way to add this button to my blog? Thanks
