Cannot link widget to email list

    I have an email list through Mailchimp. I got an "embed" code to put onto a widget so that people can type in their email and that email will be sent directly to Mailchimp onto my email list. I have typed the code into the "Arbitrary Text" widget and the code doesn't translate--when I open my website the code is still there in its raw form. I have a "Follow Blog" widget for now, but that does not send me the person's email to put on an email list--it simply notifies them when I post a new blog. Is there a way to make this work? Thank you!!!

    The blog I need help with is wildheartdreams.com.

  2. That code will always be stripped out here, for security reasons. What we suggest is that you put the code in an external page like Google Docs or Tumblr and link to it from your WP.com blog.
