How do I contact subscribers to my blog?

Hi - I started a rather rambly blog and noticed the other day I have over 400 subscribers. I am a total blogging virgin and I can't even see on my Wordpress site where you can subscribe confused.
Also is there a way I can email my subscriber list?

Is 400 subscribers even relevant? The email addresses all look legitimate...

I don't use Wordpress so I'm not sure 🤔 if they haven't signed up to a newsletter or anything though then I don't think you should be emailing them (and would likely be in breach of the data protection act). 400 is a lot of followers though, especially if it's in a short time.

I'm getting about 20 new subscribers a day. I didn't realise as the emails were going to my junk.
I guess if they're subscribed they'll be notified if I do a new post?
Literally all new to me!

iloveberries - are you selfhostet or on I don't know much about later but with former - it could be some bots. So you'll need some plugins for protection.

As for contacting? Why do you want it, or what are you planning to do? Because you usually have the list of e.mails. If you want to some sort of newsletter, people usually do it through 3d party service. like mailchimps

Please link to your blog, OP! Would love to have a look.

Why do you want to email your subscribers? Do you want to send a regular email newsletter? If so you could use Tiny Letter but you would need to send an initial email giving them the option to opt in or out (and all future emails will have an unsubscribe link).

If you don't actually want to email them you'll have to find and remove the "subscribe" button wink
