How do my friends find my blog?
How do my friends find my blog. When they log onto WordPress.com they are invited to create a blog but there is no “search” icon for them to find mine.
The blog I need help with is patriciaptaylor.wordpress.com.
They type the URL into their upper browser window and click or you email them the active link http://patriciaptaylor.wordpress.com/
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.

The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/
For Google searches use this format and replace “keyword” with whatever word you wish:
Example search string
Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com

The Tags search page is in the Reader area of the Dashboard.
The Search Widget adds a search box to your blog sidebar, allowing readers to easily search your site for posts and pages you’ve written in the past. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/search-widget/
