If you would like to get email updates of new blogs in your email, please follow these simple instructions.
1) On any blog page, click the "subscribe" link that is just below the banner. It should take you to a page that looks like the screen shot below.
2) On the new page, ignore the box on the upper right that says "subscribe." It is useless for this purpose. Instead, go a few lines down the page until on the left you see a colorful line of icons. Click the orange, next to last, icon that looks like an envelope.
3) fill in your email address and subscribe.
I am sorry that it is not very obvious how to simply get blog updates sent to your email. I went back and forth with Typepad on this issue to little avail. Keep in mind that you can easily unsubscribe from email updates. Each update gives you an option to unsubscribe. It is interesting that unsubscribing is easier than subscribing.....
