    I’d like to be able to email a “thank you” to my followers. How do I get their email info or somehow respond to their decision to follow?

    The blog I need help with is makeroomformommy.wordpress.com.

    There’s no built-in feature to do that. Your follwers control how frequently they receive emails of your posts and they can choose to use the Reader and not receive email at all.

    Your site stats page displays how many followers you have, who your followers are, as well as how many people are subscribed to post comments on your site.

    Dashboard > Site stats > Total, ‘Followers’ , Shares
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#totals-followers-shares

    Click “blog” and when that page opens click “email followers”

    Note: You cannot obtain any information that personally identifies any of your followers. This is a privacy issue. What’s required for registering here is an email address only. That email address is for many of us a throwaway email address.

    Note 2: This may sound “heavy” but I think it’s important to recognize that when an email address is provided for a specific purpose, such as for receiving posts from a blog or submitting a comment to a blog, that is the only purpose it is being provided for, and any additional use of it is unauthorized. In Canada it’s illegal to use an email address for any purpose other than the specific purpose it was provided for.
