Following self hosted wordpress blogs?

  1. I have recently taken over a self hosted wordpress blog http://www.photobotos.com which was using an external tool (mailchimp) to notifying followers about new posts.

    I want to ditch mailchimp and use wordpress's own e-mail notifications.

    It looks like the best (maybe only) way to do this is by using jetpack.

    After installing jetpack I have apparently got 12,000 followers (4,000 e-mail followers and 8,000 wordpress.com followers). Where might these have come from?

    I have now added the follow widget so I understand how new people could signup to e-mails.

    Is it possible to add a "wordpress.com follow" button?

    Can I import my subscriber list from mailchimp into wordpress?

    And finally... can I customise the e-mail template used to notify followers of new posts?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is www.photobotos.com.

    Note that these WordPress.COM support forums are only for those with free hosted WordPress.COM blogs. I suggest looking for an answer to your question here first > http://jetpack.me/support/ If you do not find one then the Jetpack forum is at WordPress.org http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/jetpack If you don't have a username account at WordPress.org, click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post there.

  4. Thank you
