How to follow a blog and adding the follow me button to my blog

I have just started on typepad on the free version. I can't find the button to add the follow me button on my page. Is this feature only available to the paying blogs?

Secondly I would like to know how I can follow other blogs that I read if they don't have the follow me button on their page? eg. how would I search to add them?

On the free version, when you log in and look at your own blog, it has a little white box next to "Followers" in the sidebar that says "this is you." If another person goes to your blog on his or her own, the place that says "this is you" is replaced with a little box that says "Sign in or register to follow." If they click there, up will come the dialogue boxes in which to input their email address, a password, and a place to click to "follow." The same thing should happen if you go to someone's should find the "Sign in or register to follow". Also if on your own blog you click on "followers" the icons and names of the people who are following you will can click on them to follow them. But be aware...just because someone is"following" you, they won't know if you post unless they go to your blog and look. There is no email notification to them when you post, even though they have input their email address when they signed up to follow you. BUMMER,
