How to engage with the WordPress Community
Look for great reads
Please employ the Tag Lists in the Readers to look for whatever you need. Also, you are able to follow non-WordPress.com blogs such as Tumblr, Blogger, and so more. Please go to Followed Sites → Manage in the Reader and put it in the link of any site that you want to keep up with.
Catch up with bloggers that you follow
When following a specific blog, you are allowed to make decision on how you want to get upcoming posts in the future - they will be all collected in the Followed Sites tab or if you want, you can get them through instant, daily or monthly email. Maybe you could go with the instant email option for blogs that you especially pay attentioin to, or the daily email for a blog that posts several times a day. In case you are committed to inbox zero, you might opt for no email at all.
Please head to your Notification settings in case you are in need of changing or updating your email delivery settings globally.
Like, comment and reshare posts that you like
One of the perks of blogging in a community is that you are able to actively interact and share with other bloggers directly. You are allowed to express your appreciation for any post merely with a Like, elaborate with a comment and share what you have found with all of your readers by reblogging.
Reblogging, just similar to retweeting, is considered a very fast way to share posts generated by other users on WordPress.com while giving the real author permission to have control over their content. When you reblog a post, there will be an excerpt displaying on your site together with a URL to the original option and any commentary you have added.
You are allowed to reblog from within the Reader or from a personal blog. Once you are logged into WordPress.com, you will definitely see a reblog option in the toolbar which is located on the top of your screen.
