Subscriptions and Newsletters

This article explains how readers can subscribe to your blog to receive email notifications of all of your posts. 

On, any reader can follow (subscribe to) your blog to receive an email every time you write a new post. Logged in users of can do this by clicking the Follow button in their admin bar. Logged out readers can click the Follow button in the lower right-hand corner of your blog’s home page. For more information about this, see this article.

Once readers have followed your blog, they can elect to receive an email each time you post, or to receive daily or weekly digests of all of your new posts. They can also elect to receive no emails, but to read your blog only in the Reader.

To make it more obvious how to follow your blog, you can add the Subscription Form block to any post or page.

You can also put the Follow Blog Widget in your sidebar or footer area. Another option is to use the Blog Subscription Shortcode.

Note: If you have your Site Visibility options set to private, your subscribers will not receive any email notifications of your posts.

Jetpack Subscriptions will only send out notifications for new posts. Publishing other post types (like pages or a custom post type) or making updates to an already published post will not send a notification e-mail.

Follow by RSS

Readers can also subscribe to your blog’s RSS feed in an RSS feed reader. To highlight this, you can use the RSS Links Widget.

Newsletters does not offer an in-platform tool for creating your own custom newsletters; however, we have a few options available to do so. First, if you would like to offer a newsletter subscription, you can use a contact form that interested readers can fill out to be added to your newsletter list. Then, you can send your newsletter out from your own email client or newsletter service.

You can also use the Revue block. Revue is is an editorial tool for writers and publishers, which helps you create a personal newsletter. The Revue block creates a simple form for readers to opt-in to receive your newsletter.

Other popular newsletter services are MailChimp or AWeber. Please note that you’ll need to use the option to share a link to your newsletter form.

If you’d like to give your visitors a way to subscribe to your list on your blog, you can use the MailChimp Subscriber Popup Form or use the MailChimp block.
