Can you help me with this? I’ve followed the directions, but I must be missing a step (or two) The blog I need help with is millmansquash.wordpress.com.

You can do this a couple of ways: 1) Physically email people on your email list your blog address (http://millmansquash.wordpress.com/) or email whenever there’s a new post. 2) Use Subscribe2 – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/subscribe2/ Let me know if I’m misunderstanding. Best of luck.

They are for WordPress.org installs only.
