HOW TO Add ‘Follow by Email’ & ‘Follow’ Widgets to WordPress Blogs…
One of my fellow WP Blogger Friends asked me how they can add a ‘Follow by Email’ button onto their WP blog.

6. As I understand it, the ‘Follow’ Button will enable Followers to receive RSS Notifications of your posts
7. The ‘Follow Blog’ widget will enable Followers to receive Email notifications of all your posts
8. This is what the Follow Blog widget looks like inside
