Just following the directions ...

  1. Why is it taking so long for my theme to activate? This is only the second step in the process. How many steps are there to blog if you want to use a free blog service, and do those steps all take as long as this one? (10 minutes and counting ...)

  2. What theme are you trying to activate?

  4. Hey -- I think my theme just showed up. I still would like to know if this is typical of all the steps in the set-up-your-free-Wordpress-blog process. How long should it take?
