    Hi I want to add a subscribe/follow button on my blog so people can put in their emails and get an alert when I post new things, something like Feedburner Email Subscription.
    Also I really dont like the themes and why are there so few ? 21 out of thousands
    How can I make my blog look good with a theme of my choice.
    thanks for any help

    Yes I agree about the themes, not much choice. I’d also like to add a twitter button. I used the Jetpack plugin to do this with WordPress before but I can’t see how we can add plugins here either. Would anyone know?


    Hi Andrew and Valerie,
    We periodically add new themes, often in response to requests from users. If you have a suggestion, let me know. However, the more we add, the more there are to maintain, and we have limited resources, so we can’t add a great many.
    We can enable Jetpack on request for users. That includes a subscribe option.
    It should be possible to add Twitter content without Jetpack, using the embed code from the twitter site, and adding it to an html widget.
    Best wishes,
