Hello Brendan

If people would like to subscribe to your blog, they would use the RSS feed URL and add it to their RSS reader (like Google Reader). You can find your RSS feed URL on your blog page, next to the icon that says "Subscribe to this blog".

If you would like to be able to send out emails to people to let them know that you have updated your blog, you would need to have some kind of subscription form on your site to gather their information. You can add a form by choosing one of the services and following the steps on this link: Forms.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you have further questions.

Hello Yhan,

There are a number of ways that you can do this.

You could create a submission form with the applicant details, including their email address in the required fields. When they submit the form you will see their email address in the message fields. You can direct these submissions to an email address you prefer.

If your offering is a subscription to a periodical email of yours then this can be set up with various providers including Mail Chimp and this really allows you a hands free approach as Mail Chimp handles the sendouts and gives you access to the subscribers details. There are many alternatives to Mail Chimp.
