I do appreciate your effort to solve this problem but none of the 20 or so people I've invited have been able to see my blog. None. These are smart people who know how to follow directions
I did follow the links/ instructions immediately after I posted my blog that I published as PRIVATE. The other category of invitee that your first set of responses did not address, as I said before,is VIEWER. I "invited" my friends to see my blog and assigned them the role of VIEWER.
Can someone PLEASE take a look at perhaps the technical pieces of my post and see what the problem is?
I posted my blog Friday evening, HST and it is now Tuesday. Way too long to go without resolution. It is helpful when what I write on this "support" page is read with care.
Again, I appreciate your effort. I still need a solution. First impressions are important. At this moment I would not "go premium" based on this experience with WordPress.com so far. There is an opportunity here...
