How to Add a Registration/RSVP Form to Your WordPress.com Blog

This afternoon I was sent an email from the The Arc of New Jersey inviting me to SAVE THE DATE for an upcoming FREE Webinar on Fetal Alcohol  Spectrum Disorders. I was immediately impressed with their use of a WordPress.com blog dedicated to the registration process.

I noticed that they created a separate page for the registration form.  Did you know you could do this? Well, I didn’t and immediately wanted to share with others. You can check out the results by visiting The Webinar FASD Invite Site by The Arc of New Jersey. If you are interested in the webinar you can also sign up.

If you want to know HOW to set this up on your own WordPress.com blog visit this comprehensive tutorial from the support section of WordPress.com on how to set up a RSVP Contact form.

If you do one please share it.
