    I've read through the other posts about this and still can't figure out how to enable visitors to sign up to receive my blog via email. Can any one help?

    As some of the posts suggested, i added a meta widget and clicked the box to allow anyone to join but there is still no place for people to sign up.

    Thanks for any suggestions anyone might have!

    Hmm... for general account signups, if you have Anyone Can Sign Up enabled, a link should be added to the wp-login page and the meta widget that points to the registration page.

    As for receiving posts via email, I don't think that functionality is built into the WordPress core, so you'll either need to add a plugin that supports that functionality (this one looks promising: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/subscribe2/) or sign up for a external newsletter provider that can send out newsletters based on the content in your RSS feed or your own custom newsletters (such as MailChimp).

    Note: Haven't used that plugin before... found it from a search in the plugin library, so your mileage may vary.

    I hope this helps!
