    On some WordPress blogs I visit there is an option to register to the blog under the Meta, is this only for WP.org or is there a way to do it for WP.com as well? If not, will this feature ever be added in the future? Not anyhing completely vital, but it would be interesting to have as an option.

    I think registering from a wordpress.com blog is the same as register from the front page.

    Do you mean asking people to subscribe to your blog?

    Well, on some blogs in order to comment you have to register to that blog, its in the meta, right above login.

    As in, I believe you have to make a seperate username, just for that blog. You would click register, make a username and give your email, then a password would be emailed to you.

    Registering isn’t needed. It’s only for people who self-host.

    People subscribe to blogs using RSS. All blogs have this enabled.
