    I’m to Step 4: Downloading and Installing WordPress, which says,
    “Now it’s time to download WordPress. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped the WordPress download, open up the ‘wordpress’ folder. Click and drag all of the files from the wordpress folder to your MAMP document root (I use /Users/USERNAME/Sites/wordpress/).

    Lastly, we’ve got to run WordPress’ famous 5-minute install. Visit your local site (localhost:port or localhost:port/wordpress), and enter the following information into the database setup form:”

    It’s that last bit about “visiting my local site (localhost:port or localhost:port/wordpress) – I have no idea what that means or where that is. Dumb question? Sorry – but I need help! Thanks!

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

    Means:

    The site you are asking about does not seem to be hosted on WordPress.COM so you need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using.

    This site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM. You should address your questions to WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using: http://wordpress.org/support/

    For more on the difference: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You do need to be at wordpress.ORG, but take a look at this.
