Hopefully we will learn together.So firstly, the address. Go to your web browser – internet explorer, firefox, safari etc – and type intothe address bar the URL of the blogwww.mundellastars.wordpress.comYou will see the front page of the blog that I have started. It should look like this –What I want to happen is for all of the children to register on wordpress.com as users.
