    I run a small blog and was wondering how I would add a type of email signup where they would receive weekly emails with that week's posts, etc. I'm not really sure how to add that to my blog, and how all that works. Can anyone help me out as far as placing it on my wordpress site, and then being able to send out the emails of course? I searched for ones, but all I was able to find were ones such as constant contact, in other words services which you pay for....are there any free ones?

    MailChimp offer RSS-to-Email services, there is a free tier and they publish an excellent Wordpress plugin to do the integration:

    If your blog runs on Wordpress and is self-hosted, your search ends here :
    Code:
