what do you mean they do not work?
Note that the web server handling example.wordpress.com MUST know that the
wordpress.mydomain.com is alternative name to example.wordpress.com,
OR you must configure http server for wordpress.mydomain.com anywhere just to
send HTTP redirect to example.wordpress.com.
CNAME does not cause HTTP redirects and no HTTP server I know parses CNAME
just to know which site you mean.
