How do I fix this MESS??????

  1. ALL I want to do is see my daughters pregnancy blog!! I registered for that SOLE PURPOSE, NOT to have a blog of my own!!

    The invite listed
    https://wordpress.com?action=wpcom-invite-users&key=936899730a87ba0c0cdac053a55f3562&blog_id=59818844
    as the the invite address. When I pressed that I was required to sign in, WHICH required me to register in order to do so. I proceeded to do that, to only end up with a blog, and still no access to her site.

    As I wrote this it occured to me that when registering I used my preferred email (which forwards to the other) and not the one she used to send me the message. I have no idea how to undo this!!

    Does she have to send me a new invite to the one I registered with, or do I need to just register with the other address? It appears that I will have to ask her for another invite in any case, since the invite is now giving the message that it has been used and is no longer any good = BOTHER!!!

    In any case, if I decided to have a blog (something I never considered until this time) I would not want the label I used when registering!

    HELP!!!

    The blog I need help with is cat333nc.wordpress.com.

  2. If she sends you another invitation, with either your username or the actual address you used to sign up for your account, then you should be able to access her site.

    You do not have to blog! If you like, you can just ignore the blog you set up, or set it to private.

    (choose option 3:
    "I would like my blog to be visible only to users I choose")

  3. Thank you. It is a bother that she has to send another email, but at least I didn't mess it up totally! (Moms can be such ninnys!)

  4. You are welcome. You know, we were all beginners once—new skills involve a bit of confusion, but I'm sure you'll soon be able to enjoy viewing your daughter's site. If you need more help, please don't hesitate to ask.

  5. Thanks again.
    The same thing happened when I tried to sign my best friend up for the site -- used invite to sign up (this time with the correct original address), then could not get into the baby blog because the invite had already been used. What a bother, but have sent an email to my daughter asking for new invites for us both, so hopefully it will work out.

  6. WHOOPS!!

    Guess I am still signed into her wordpress account (and my email account). ACK!! Will try this all again tomorrow.

    Sorry if that caused any further confusion!!

  7. Just to be sure we are all on the same page, so to speak, you are using the instructions from this Support Article:

  8. All is well!!

    As you said, we were all beginners once, and it sure took me a LONG time (by my standards of what I expect of myself and computers) to figure it all out!! I am going to blame recent stress levels ;-)

    Both accounts are signed up here, AND to the desired blog (which is now the first thing we see when signing in). Goals accomplished, thanks to your help and calming influence!!!

    Sorry it took me so long, and the intermediary panic stage (that you saw me through) to figure it all out. It sure would be nice if they offered a 'viewing membership' that was easier to sign up for(and into), but that might be contrary to the goals of the site.

    In any case, your help was both greatly needed and is appreciated! Thank you, again!

  9. You are most welcome. Enjoy the exciting new times with your daughter online!
