I would like to create a subscribe box like yours at MakeUseOf. How do I do this?

    sorry, as the tech guy behind MUO I probably should have answered this sooner!

    It's not a widget or anything that you can just "add" as such. If you mean you'd like a box for users to input their email address and subscribe by email, http://www.feedburner.com can offer similar functionality. The facebook like button etc is available from http://developer.facebook.com and is very easy to use. Other than that, the design is just basic CSS, if you wanted to copy the style I'd suggest you download Firebug for FireFox and examine the CSS like that.

    http://www.jotform.com is an easy way to create a form. You design the form on their site then get the html code. It will send people's input to a folder in your dropbox. You just then need to add people's email addresses to your mailing list.

    If you have a wordpress blog, there should (probably) be an easy way to add it using a plugin. WordPress.com has this built in.

    The Subscribe box is a simple HTML Form with an Input Element and some CSS Styles applied to it. The entire thing is than wrapped in a DIV (which ironically has the class "wrapper").
