I have added the subscription widget to my sidebar so that readers will be notified each time I post. I tested it using my own email address and was supoosed to get a confirmation email to confirm my subscription but I never did. Is there something I need to configure in order to get my subscriptions to work?
Are you using Jetpack.me to get the subscriptions? I know that there was a bug reported about this just a few days ago. I think that the jetpack team are working on an update. Make sure to upgrade to the latest version.
Thanks so much for your response Christine. It is working now. I have no idea how I actually made it happen. I am applying the infinite monkey theorem to my blog – if I just keep hitting enough keys I will surely make it work. 😉
