Signing up for the Blog

To post your work for class, you’ll need to be an Author at the Counterintuitive Fall 2015 blog, and to accomplish that, you’ll need a WordPress username.

Step 1. Navigate to wordpress.com/start/account/user. You’ll be presented with a form like this one.

Lets get started

Step 2. Use an email address you can access immediately during the setup process.

Step 3. To protect your anonymity, select a unique username that does not reflect your identity (except to you). WordPress will let you know if the name is available; you may have to try several.

Step 4. Write down your username in a safe place so you won’t forget it!

Step 5. Choose and record a password.

Step 6. Click Create My Account.

Step 7. You’ll receive an Activation email at the address you specified.

Step 9. Once you have a verified username, share it with me and I’ll invite you to the blog as an Author. You’ll receive this final email.

Step 10. Click Accept Invitation.
