finding a specific blog

  1. How do I search for a specific blog I want to follow?

    The blog I need help with is kellytrippteaching.wordpress.com.

  2. There are over 35 million and there is no list one can use to locate them. The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    For Google searches use this format and replace "keyword" with whatever word you wish:
    keyword site:wordpress.com/

    Example search string
    Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com
    results > http://tinyurl.com/csaobsx

    For Topics (Tags page) searches see http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/

  3. FYI - I discovered something.... If I go into the Blogs that I follow and choose edit, I get a search box inwhich I can enter a wordpress URL. Voila !! I am now able to follow a specific blog as long as I know the URL.

  4. A big, big thanks to WordPress people for their help !!

  5. Yes, indeed you can. http://wordpress.com/#!/read/edit/
    I'm sorry I did not twig to the fact that you knew what the URL was.
