Wordpress Subrscribe Option

I am still somewhat new to wordpress, is there a plugin that I can use to get the Subscribe box on my sidebar? I haven't found one yet. :confused:

Are they easy to implement?

    There are a couple of newsletter/autoresponders you could use, search the plugin directory for them.
    GWA autoresponder (Free and Pro version available)
    BFT Newsletter plugin (I think)

    Both work quite well - as for are they easy to use, that really depends upon your level of experience with how autoresponders/newsletters work. I would say that I think they are easy enough to install and set up.

    You can also add their form code to an optin pop in plugin too.

    A lot round here will tell you to go with a paid autoresponder service, but as long as you are not intending to Spam the heck out of your subscribers, either of those two plugins will get your list started.

    When you find one that you are comfortable using, you copy and paste the form code into a text widget to get the sign up form to display in your sidebar on your blog.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you! I'm completely new to building a list so I really didn't have a clue how to get started.
