OR Can I transfer it to them when I have finished setting it up? Thanks so much! The blog I need help with is carolclaassen.wordpress.com.

Might be a bit easier to just set things up with their own account. Many times people set a site up on their own account and then transfer it to their friends after their friends get the hang of what they are doing.

If you do choose to set it the blog up for them and then transfer it to your friend these instructions are important. user roles http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/ adding users http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/ transfer blog to another username account http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account Also your friend will need this link > The Learn WordPress.com tutorial is divided into progressive levels and presented as a series > http://learn.wordpress.com/ Author Posts The topic ‘Blog for someone else’ is closed to new replies.
