    You cannot use that code on a WordPress.COM hosted blog. You can register with feedburner and include the code they provide in a text widget https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    Here our subscribers control their own subscriptions and the frequency of receipt of posts. We cannot subscribe/unsubscribe on behalf of others or control frequency of receipt of our posts.

    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.

    We have a subscription shortcode which you can make use of. The help page on it is right here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/blog-subscription-shortcode/ You can also include the subscription shortcode at the end of every post you publish.

    Additional information:
    You can create a Subscribe page and clearly state on it that you intend to harvest email addresses if that’s what you want to do. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ You can add and customize a contact form with multiple fields, change the email address where you’ll be notified, and mark feedbacks as spam from your dashboard on that page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

    You can create a sign up page on MailChimp. If you want to use MailChimp with your WordPress.com site right now you can do so by creating a link to the signup form on MailChimp and providing it to your visitors. Here’s the info from MailChimp Support http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/how-to-add-a-mailchimp-signup-form-to-your-wordpress-blog
