Where are my subscribers?

  1. How do I get a list of subscribers to my blog with their email addresses? There is nothing in Users but me!
    Blog url: http://eleanororourke.wordpress.com/

  2. 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"
    http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?blog_subscribers&type=email

    Note 1: You cannot obtain any information that personally identifies any of your followers. This is a privacy issue. What's required for registering here is an email address only. That email address is for many of us a throwaway email address.

    Note 2: This may sound "heavy" but I think it's important to recognize that when an email address is provided for a specific purpose, such as for receiving posts from a blog or submitting a comment to a blog, that is the only purpose it is being provided for, and any additional use of it is unauthorized. For example in Canada it's illegal to use an email address for any purpose other than the specific purpose it was provided for.

  3. When I go into site stats, there is no button for total followers etc..

    I'm worried that I've got it set up correctly. I have got followers, just can't find them anywhere on the dashboard.

  4. Please click the links I provided and report what happens when you click them.

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

  5. I'm sorry I meant to post only the second link above

  6. Ooops! Sorry you're right I've found them now. Next I want to import my Posterous followers into wordpress - there aren't many so I can do it manually. Is it possible to add them in somewhere?

    Thanks SO much for this, I'd wasted hours of time before I found you!

  7. You're welcome. :)

    You can create an XML export file of your content at Posterous and then import it into your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/ But there's no means of importing your email list.

  8. Sorry, last question! Is there anywhere I can manually add the email address of a subscriber to my blog? Or to a mailchimp account?
