I think I may have been locked out of getting into my blog dashboard. Have tried multiple tries and different paths for inputting email address, password and gravatar info. Now I am getting a message telling me to ask for access from the administrator. I am so confused right now and not locating and exact solution. What to do? I have lost too much time with this.

I've noticed this page too. After I log in I get a message to say I can't access the dashboard. However, below you see links to your blogs. Just click on them and it will take you to the dashboard. I don't know why this page has suddenly appeared - very confusing.
There's an issue with creating posts on the front page of WordPress.com and with editing posts created there that will not be fixed until the next upgrade. Do not create posts here > http://wordpress.com/#!/post/
Instead I recommend that you ONLY create posts here > Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

Is there really no more access directly to the dashboard from the reader? That nice grey line that used to appear above everything else that had the small dropdown on the left and the gravatar with the dropdown on the right are gone: they only appear if you navigate out of the reader - what a pain to have to navigate all over the place just to access something that used to be so simple...
