This is a reblog of Aniko Carmean’s excellent post. Let me tell you–I’m in awe.
I was under the impression that since Mailchimp had a plug-in, and WordPress.com won’t take plug-ins, that I was going to have to self-host and convert to WordPress.org to get it done. And y’know, it costs more money, and I’m a writer, so I’ve been pumping it all back into writing with little to show for it so far in terms of monetary rewards. (Three short story sales.)
But then my publisher informed me that we had a book coming out THIS MONTH, and that lit a fire under me. I found this lovely article buried in the WordPress help forum. It’s not even in the menu–it’s buried in the questions section.
I’m in awe. I mean, she even tells you how to fiddle with the colors. It would be enough if the thing worked–and it does work. If I can do it, you certainly can.
