    Can you be more specific about the exact difficulty you’re having?

    here is the error I’m getting:

    Error: Could not find your blog.
    The WordPress app for HootSuite supports WordPress.org sites V 3.4+
    Your WordPress site must be XML-RPC enabled

    my site is http://geoffshufelt.wordpress.com

    XML-RPC is already enabled by default here at WordPress.com.
    Make sure that you have the correct XML-RPC URL:
    See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

    thanks timethief, I tried it, but I’m still getting the same error.

    Is there a way to check to make sure I have V 3.4+?

    I don’t used Hootsuite. https://hootsuite.com/
    Have you tried the Help desk there?

    Your screenshot suggests you are trying to connect HootSuite to a self-hosted blog running the software at WordPress.org. If the blog in question is not hosted on WordPress.com, we will not be able to provide direct support for you here. Instead, you may wish to check the WordPress.org forums for more assistance:

    To anyone having this problem: I think the issue is that you’re trying to connect using the WordPress.org app (which doesn’t work for .com blogs). Here’s what I did: I clicked on “Add Stream” near the top. Then I clicked on “WordPress” in the menu that came up there and typed in username / password. That worked for me, but if you have more than one blog, it looks like it defaults to your Primary Blog. Here’s what it says under “Settings”: If you manage multiple blogs under one WordPress.com account you must set which blog will be updated by calls from HootSuite. Log into WordPress.com and choose your Primary Blog under Settings – Account (reached from Global Dashboard).
    I hope that helps someone here.
