Using widgets

    Hi there,

    so I've started a page, and am only just realising how little I know about everything to do with running a blog.

    I'd like people to view my page, and so need followers - and apparently you can use widgets to make this happen.

    So - what is a widget? And how can I use widgets to get people to follow me?

    Thank you, and sorry for what must be a really elementary couple of questions.

    The blog I need help with is abelieverinhumanity.wordpress.com.

  2. You can set up email subscriptions here > Appearance > Widgets > Follow Blog Widgets by using this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/follow-blog-widget/

    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 go to > Settings > Reading and scroll down to Follower Settings:

    These settings change emails sent from your blog to followers.
    Logged out users __ Show follow button to logged out users.

    Checking this will present a follow button to logged out users in the bottom corner of their screen.

    Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/

    You can customize the contact form with multiple fields, change the email address where you'll be notified, and mark feedbacks as spam from your dashboard. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/
