I am sure you often noticed in the blogs that there has been an option to “Subscribe To Newsletter” option in the comment box itself. Although the option is marvellous as you are getting two functionalities at single par – subscription to newsletter and that of comment. Interestingly, the user in order to subscribe all they have to do is to click on the checkbox and they will be subscribed while the user can use the same email as that they will be using for commenting purpose.
