Sometimes it just takes me a lot longer than others to figure this technical stuff out. I finally was able to get my readers a link to sign up for emails when new posts are added to the blog.
This is such a relief! I have received emails about this, but really did not know how to do this one WordPress (Blogger was so familiar to me).
If you look at the first sidebar column, there is a link for you to click on so you can receive email updates.
Easy peasy for you!
