I feel foolish but I can't figure out how to get all the subscribers from my last blog onto the subscriber list for my new blog. Help?

I didn't even know that was possible. So if you find out - let me know too

Most of the blogging functionality was designed around the traditional model of just having one blog for everything you write, not around the model of starting a new blog for each new trip. Or when considering multi-subject blogs, not everyone who wants to read about someone's "cruising" blog posts will also want to read about their "backpacking" blog posts. This means that subscribing to each new blog is a manual act, and there's no way to "transfer" subscribers automatically.

My recommendation is to 'finish' each old blog with a post pointing to the new one, including an explicit note that people should go subscribe there.

Alternatively, if you're really certain that a subscriber would want to be subscribed to your new blog, and might have trouble subscribing themselves, you could enter their email address on your new blog's subscription page for them.
