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.
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 8. Click Confirm Email Address. You’ll be directed back to a WordPress page like this one:
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.
