Following a WordPress Blog

To follow a WordPress blog, type in the blog URL into your address bar (Mr. Gaillard’s is wmsupdate.wordpress.com and this one is tklandreth.wordpress.com) and click on +Follow  in the lower right hand corner, then type in your email address. You should now receive emails whenever there is a new post.

You can also create a WordPress account and follow that way.  By creating an account you can set when you receive emails or use it for the WordPress app on your smart phone.  To create a WordPress account or to login to your account go to wordpress.com and click on Log In in the upper right hand corner.

Fill in your e-mail address, choose a username, and pick a password (If you do not choose a password that is strong enough it will not accept it and a green check will not appear.).  Even if you do not plan on using a WordPress blog you still need to fill in a blog name.  It will automatically fill in your username and you can use that one.  Make sure you have 4 green check marks before you scroll down.

    On my Apple, at the very bottom right of someone’s blog, I just clicked onto the +Follow button and became a ‘follower’ without registering. It’s a bit easier, but I don’t know if it works on other computers. (: Susan DZ
