  • (you’ll be able to add others later). This is the unique address that people will visit to check out your blog.
  • (You can change this later in your Settings menu — we’ll show you that in a bit.)
  • (You can also change this later in your Settings.)
  • If you can’t find the email in your inbox, check your spam or trash folders.
