What A record do I add to complete my domain mapping?

    Several months ago, I purchased the domain pjkatzlaw.com through Google Apps so that I could create email addresses with that domain. The domain was actually registered with Godaddy.com, Google’s partner.

    A few days ago, I created my first wordpress blog—pjkatzlaw.wordpress.com. I would prefer to use my pjkatzlaw.com domain for my blog, so I paid $13 to wordpress.com for domain mapping. I have read the instructions for domain mapping, and understand that I must change my domain’s name servers on Godaddy.com, and then add custom DNS records on wordpress.com so that my email still gets delivered through gmail.

    From godaddy.com’s website, I think I’ve obtained the information I need to add custom CNAME, MX and TXT records (which all refer to Google). However, I am unsure how to update my A record. Wouldn’t I want to add a subdomain and IP address related to wordpress.com since my blog is being hosted here?

    Thanks ahead of time for the help,

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