Magic Moment: Quick subscription in WordPress.com

I’ve started a new facility, my Magic Moments. These are going to be quick-fire top tips that I’ve found out from WordPress.com (and .org if necessary) that I want to share with you.

Here is Magic Moment #1: How to quickly subscribe to a blog through the comments box.

At the bottom you see that I’ve checked both boxes, the first for WordPress to let me know if anybody else comments on this post, so I can choose to continue the conversation, and the second to send any new posts to my inbox that this blog publishes.

This is a very simple way of getting people to subscribe to your blog, as long as they leave a comment. But… this method is only visible (and therefore available) on the post’s permalinked page (each post’s personal page) when the comment boxes are shown, and it is not visible from the blog’s index page.

There are other methods to obtain subscribers, but I will talk about those in other Magic Moments… watch this space!
