How to create an account
Click the button at the left to “log in / view dashboard,” or scroll to the bottom and click “log in” under the Meta menu. On the login screen that appears, either use your existing WordPress account — see below — or click the “Register” link below the password entry form. If you don’t want to create a blog right now, you can sign up for just a WordPress username by clicking the link at the lower right of the registration screen, as shown in the picture below. (Don’t worry, you can always create your own new website later if you want.)
Once you have a confirmed account, head back to this page and use the form above to let us know your username. We’ll get you added as an author straight away!
