I had several people who were disappointed that they wouldn’t be able to subscribe to my new blog because WordPress.org doesn’t work quite the same way as WordPress.com. I have, however, found a decent substitute plugin that will allow you to subscribe to posts at the new blog via email! It’ll be on the right sidebar of A Sense of Natural Wonder, as well as each individual blog post (I just posted one today, BTW).
I’m still looking for a workaround that will let you subscribe to the blog via your WordPress.com account; if anyone has any good ideas there, please do let me know. And thank you!
