  2. I'm sorry but there is no mailing list feature on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and there is no upgrade you can purchase to acquire such a feature. If you are into email a marketing then you need to hire a web host and set up your own self hosted WordPress.org install.

    What we have here is what follows:
    Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/

    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 >
    http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/09/21/more-traffic-for-your-blog-with-the-follow-button/

    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.

    Note: Your site stats page displays how many followers you have, who your followers are, as well as how many people are subscribed to post comments on your site.

    Dashboard > Site stats > Total, 'Followers' , Shares
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#totals-followers-shares

    Click "blog" and when that page opens click "email followers"
