    Hello!

    If you are looking at a solution to enable your blog readers to follow your blog, you can use the “Following blogs” feature available in WordPress.com sites. You can read more about it here. https://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#how-to-follow-blogs

    If you’re actually hoping for a secondary pop-up window, that function requires script that isn’t allowed on WordPress.com-hosted sites. If it’s important to you that your site behaves in this manner, you may want to consider moving to a self-hosted version of WordPress on an outside server. If you are self-hosted, there are plugins you can install to create popups.

    If you’re interested in learning the differences between hosting your site here, with WordPress.com, and self-hosting via WordPress.org, take a look at this link: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I hope this helps. Feel free to get back if you have questions.

    Hi there, Looking at your site I do see a “pop up” subscription box in the footer. Were you able to resolve this?

    As it looks like you have a paid upgrade on your site, you also have access to direct support from Staff by live chat or email. You can contact them via the contact form at https://wordpress.com/help/contact when you are logged in to the username account that purchased the upgrade. Thanks

    For anyone else looking for a pop-up subscription form, WordPressdotcom has a special widget for Mail Chimp, which you can learn more about here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/mailchimp/

    How do I create a pop up subscribing page to my channel when you click on my blog ?

    Could you tell us a bit more what you mean by “channel”? Once we know what you’re trying to do exactly, we can provide better help. :)

    The only pop-up widget included is the MailChimp newsletter one that Jennifer pointed out above, but…

    If you’re actually hoping for a secondary pop-up window, that function requires script that isn’t allowed on WordPress.com-hosted sites.

    Just wanted to make a small correction here – if you upgrade to the Business plan, you can install a plugin that would create a pop-up, or you could add custom code to do the same.

    Just let us know if we can help further!
