Mailing Lists

    Hello,

    I've been reading about mailing lists on wordpress.com (and realise there's no option for this - just contact forms) and have decided to go with Mail Chimp - and then put a link to it on my blog.

    This seems simple enough - but how do I make it look nice and really noticeable? - as I want people to sign up to my mailing list.

    Where is the 'Sidebar' and how do I add something like this to it? Do I need to put a widget somewhere?

    Grateful for your help.

    Jen

    The blog I need help with is jencharltonmusic.com.

  2. Looks like there is a step by step explanation on Mail Chimp about adding a link to their site using a text widget:

    They also provide this link to our forum here:

    Here is info about text widgets:

    Without knowing which theme you are using, I cannot tell where your sidebar is.

    Enhance your site with widgets

    You can add all kinds of extra features and content to the side of your blog’s main column (we call this spot the “sidebar”), and widgets make that really easy. They’re little one-shot applications that add specific, bite-sized pieces of content that might interest your readers,
