You can either use the Blog Subscription Shortcode to display a form that enables users to subscribe to your whole blog (not category-specific) using the email subscription feature, or you can provide manual links to category-specific RSS Feeds.
Let me know if there’s anything else I can help with on this.
ok cool! I figured out how to make category specific RSS feeds, how would I go about creating a button they they would click, and then they would automatically receive an email every time a new post goes up in that category?
You’d need to work with a third-party service that could send emails from an RSS feed, since WordPress.com’s subscription service only sends email for every new post irrespective of what category the post is in.
You might try looking into FeedBurner, which provides this capability, adding feeds for every category, and then providing a link to the email subscription form for that particular category.
Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.
