    Hello, I would like to add the follow button on the left side bar of my home page. I use the suburbia theme. Would you kindly help? There is no function to be able to add the widget to the left sidebar on the homepage where “Home” and “About” are currently situated. My blog is http://www.missventurecap.com.

    Thank you kindly!

    The blog I need help with is missventurecap.com.

    I’m afraid that’s not possible. Your left sidebar hosts your menu and you cannot add widgets to it.

    From your theme’s support page:

    Widgets

    Suburbia supports five widget optional areas — four in the footer and one in the sidebar in single post and page views.

    So, you cannot add any widgets to the home page sidebar, only to single post and page views.

    A possible workaround would be to create a new page, titled “Follow this blog” or whatever, and then place the Blog Subscription short code on that page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/blog-subscription-shortcode/

    Thanks kokkieh. Where would I find the shortcode for the follow? The link you provided does not show this?

    Thanks again!
