en WordPress.com Forums › Support Following self hosted wordpress blogs? Author Posts May 4, 2013 at 8:21 pm #1258132 ltickettMember I have recently taken over a self hosted wordpress blog http://www.photobotos.com which was using an external tool (mailchimp) to notifying followers about new posts. I want to ditch mailchimp and use wordpress’s own e-mail notifications. It looks like the best (maybe only) way to do this is by using jetpack. After installing jetpack I have apparently got 12,000 followers (4,000 e-mail followers and 8,000 wordpress.com followers). Where might these have come from? I have now added the follow widget so I understand how new people could signup to e-mails. Is it possible to add a “wordpress.com follow” button? Can I import my subscriber list from mailchimp into wordpress? And finally… can I customise the e-mail template used to notify followers of new posts? Thanks! Lee The blog I need help with is www.photobotos.com. May 4, 2013 at 8:28 pm #1258232 ljkjklqljkhwhljkfqjhklfqjlkqjlhMember Hi there. This forum is only for sites that are hosted at WordPress.com.
