    Hat i,
    I’ve been trying to learn how to send an html newsletter from this site and have found that e-newsletter and also wysija are plugins that would allow me to do that. However, I don’t think that they are available on wordpress.com. Is there a plugin that is available on wordpress.com that would allow me to do so? If not, could you include one of the ones listed above?
    Thanks.

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

    There isn’t anyway to send out newsletters from a WordPress.com site.

    I would suggest looking into MailChimp. Their “free” offering is the best from what I’ve seen in my research and I believe they allow up to 1000 users, but I can’t remember the number of sends you can do, but I think it is 2500 per month. They should have some plain HTML code that you can put into a text widget. This would typically be termed as “email” code. The javascript and ajax versions of the signup form code is not allowed here for security reasons.

    Alternately you could put a link, or perhaps a image and link it to the signup form for your account at MailChimp.

    In general, the newsletter plugins I’ve used for self-hosted WordPress sites, and for Joomla sites are clunky and take some getting used to so that you can work around their… peculiarities, shall we say.
