Help!

Guys, I need help. Although it bruises my ego to admit this, I can’t figure out how to do something on my blog. I want to install this fancy ‘lil plugin called AddThis so that people can easily share my articles on Twitter, Facebook, etc. BUT the problem is that my version of WordPress doesn’t allow plug-ins.

This is where I get lost.

I’m told if I have a WordPress.ORG account, I can install plug-ins. I have a WordPress.COM. Does anyone know of an easy way to change my blog to a dot ORG and not lose everything? Do I just need to find a site to host me? Will that eliminate my problems? Can anyone offer some guidance and step-by-step instructions? Puw-lease??

Love,
Your Tech-UNsavvy, but extremely grateful friend Amy

    WAIT! Don’t move to a dot-org unless you want to. Here’s what I learned from my FB friend (an old theater buddy) and it worked for my free WordPress-hosted blog.

    You can find RSS feed and email subscription options by clicking on “Appearance” and then “Widgets.” The widgets you want must be clicked and dragged to either “sidebar” or “footer.” Remember to “Save.” Then there are a few sharing options to be found by clicking “Settings” and then “Sharing.” This time, you drag what you want from “Available Services” into “Enabled Services.” I hope that helps!
