I upgraded to version 3.4 on WordPress this weekend, and I see that I can now set the site up so that readers can subscribe to get updates to my site through their email accounts. I signed myself up for it and it seems quite simple. Just type in your email address on the top right of the page and it will send you an email to confirm your status. Then check your email and click on the button to confirm. I don’t think they could make it any easier.
And see– you can even see pictures and other media I post on a given page! Woohoo!
