Follow me mod? (5 posts)

    Greetings. We are migrating from a wordpress.com hosted blog, to a self-hosted wordpress install. On wordpress.com there is a small follow-me widget which floats in the lower right hand corner, which lets users submit their email address and they'll get notified of new posts.

    Is this a homegrown mod, or is this publically available? If its homegrown, is there anything similar available for self-hosted blogs? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks!

    You can see what I mean by looking at the two versions of our blog:
    The first is:
    http://bethlehemgrocerycoop.wordpress.com/
    The second is:
    http://www.bethlehemfood.org

    Hi msarro,

    That particular follow button is something wordpress.com implemented. However, there is a work around for self-hosted blogs here:

    Hope this helps!
