Frustrated that you haven’t yet been able to subscribe to us with the existing options? You’re not alone. From the newly modified “How to Subscribe” page:
1a.) Some people have been having issues with using WordPress’ built-in email service. If this is you, you can use an outside service like Feed My Inbox. To use that particular service, click this link to their site, enter “blogasc.wordpress.com/feed/” in the top box and then your email address in the bottom box. No account creation is necessary and there is no cost. They will send a confirmation email to the address you provide, which you can click through, and you’ll be signed up within a couple minutes.
