WordPress.com has announced Subscriptions, a new feature that allows users to “track and read posts across multiple blogs, all in one place.” Users will be able to subscribe to WordPress.com blogs via a Subscribe menu in the admin bar. A “NEW” notification will appear in the admin bar if new posts are available to read. Users can also be notified via email or instant message when new content is available.
According to a comment by Andy Peatling, the subscriptions reader also works with non-WordPress.com blogs.
Subscriptions can be reached through a newly-added “Subscriptions” tab on the WordPress.com home screen.
