Installing Mail List on my New Blog
I recently made my new blog and ‘definitrly’ looking to ad the mailing list feature to it…Pls let me know in case I need to upgrade or is there a service available ‘free’. Also, pls let me know the steps to do the same !!
Blog url: http://shithappensonlyinindia.wordpress.com/
The blog I need help with is shithappensonlyinindia.wordpress.com.
I’m sorry but there is no mailing list feature on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and there is no upgrade you can purchase to acquire such a feature. If you are into email a marketing then you need to hire a web host and set up your own self hosted WordPress.org install.
What we have here is what follows:
Find Friends Who Use WordPress > http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/find-friends/
1. You can set up email subscriptions by using this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/follow-blog-widget/
2. 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 see here >
3. You can set up a customized contact form http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ on a static page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ or in a text widget http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/ and above that form you can ask those who wish to have their email address “captured” to use it.
Note: 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
Click “blog” and when that page opens click “email followers”
