Please do that now.

    Hello again,
    This is the correct link to your blog http://californiapixie.wordpress.com/
    Please link it to your username so we can click and find it instantly when you post here. It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    You can upload an image and then link it to your Facebook profile page or fan page. You can use an image widget or a text widget to display it in your sidebar.

    Almost everything for “WordPress” you find by using Google applies only to self hosted WordPress.org installs. Unless you see “WordPress.com” what you find does not apply. These are the differences: WordPress.com vs WordPress.org
    This is the support documentation that applies to free hosted WordPress.com bloggers http://en.support.wordpress.com and this is the link http://learn.wordpress.com for the learn WordPress.com blogging tutorial prepared by Staff. Hope this helps.
