How do you invite people to your blog

Travel Forums System Talk How do you invite people to your blog

I was just wondering if it is possible to either load a list of emails into your blog so they will automatically get emails, or whether there is an option to invite them to subscribe to your blog. So far I've only seen the answer 'e mail them the link' but that's an extra step for them, so I wondered if there is any other way :)

In the right-hand column of each blog there's a "subscribe" page, offering both email subscription and feeds. So you could either link people directly to that page to allow them subscribe, or I guess theoretically you could fill in their email addresses for them (but be sure to let them know separately that you've done so, so they know to expect your emails and won't immediately unsubscribe / block as spam the first time they get an email.)

Sam/Peter: We really should do double opt-in on those email subscriptions - I think right now there's no confirmation step at all.

I'm not sure whether this feature still works (??) but it looks like the easy way to invite subscribers to one's blog is to:

1. Go to your Control Panel (click on the 'head' icon at top right of screen);
2. Select "Your Control Panel";
3. Under "Spread Your Travels" select "Show others where to find you";
4. Under "Blogs you run" select and click on the URL for the blog you wish people to subscribe to - e.g. ""
5. This will take you to a screen which allows sending to either one email address or a group of email addresses.
6. If the above doesn't work, suggest you copy the paragraph below from the text of the invitation, and send it to invitees:
"If you'd like to stay updated when I post new entries, you can subscribe at"
