I currently have a 'Follow Blog' widget enabled on my blog. I want to change this for a mailing list, which I've set up with MailChimp, and added as a 'text' widget to my side menu.
I would like to now remove the 'Follow Blog' widget, but I'm concerned that this will mean I will lose those few followers if I do that.
Does anyone have any advice? Is it better to keep both? I do also have the RSS Feed button, so it's all going to get quite confusing if I keep everything!
The reason I'd like the MailChimp subscribe instead is because then I get to collect the email addresses for a mailing list, whereas when people 'Follow' with the WordPress button, I don't know who they are (unless they're fellow WordPress users).
Many thanks, Julie
