    1. Hi Lea,
      Here is the info for how to follow WordPress blogs. Hope this helps!

      Following Blogs

      When you follow a blog on WordPress.com, the new posts from that site will appear in your Reader, where you can view the latest posts published across the blogs you follow. You’ll also receive notifications of new posts by email.

      How to Follow Blogs

      If you have a WordPress.com account, when you are logged in, click the button that appears in the bottom right-hand corner of all WordPress.com sites. All new posts published on that blog will now show up in your reader. You will also receive email notifications of new posts. You can change your settings to Immediate, Daily, or Weekly delivery, or opt-out of email notifications.

      If you do not have a WordPress.com account, you can follow a blog with the button that appears in the lower right-hand corner of WordPress.com sites:

      Follow button

      After clicking on the Follow button, a dialog box will pop up asking for the email address where new blog posts should be sent.

      Follow button

      Be sure to click on the confirmation link in the email that we send you. Until you’ve confirmed your subscription request, you won’t receive email notifications for new posts and updates.

      Note: Blog administrators can hide this Follow button by adjusting their email reading settings. Here they can also customize the message that’s sent when someone follows the blog.

      You can also follow a blog using the Follow Blog Widget in a site’s sidebar:


  1. Hi Tracy,

    My name is Andy Mort and I run a membership community (sheepdressedlikewolves.com) for creative introverts and highly sensitive people with the aim of inspiring and encouraging them to embrace their temperament and use it to make a positive impact on the world.

    One of the exclusive monthly resources we use is an interview with a person I know will stimulate a lot of inspiration and encouragement. I love to keep it varied, from personality experts to artists, business people, authors and those making waves in their own fields. I would absolutely love to invite you on as a guest in The Haven to talk through a few of the many amazing takeaways I had from Thrive.

    It would be great to sort out an interview if this is something that would work for you. Please email me if so. I couldn’t find an email contact for you anywhere, thus why I got in touch here! Hope that’s ok.

    Thanks so much. Keep up the wonderful work!
