    I just created a WP.com blog and I cannot change anything. I cannot access appearance options etc. I am not an administrator! Why not? How do I get control of my site?

    We can’t help without a link to the blog, starting with http.

    I’m new to this so pls excuse my naivety.

    When I log in, I go to a plan kind of layout with only a My account option, and a Global dashboard option (no plain dashboard). The url is…

    http://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    SOes that make sense to you?

    There’s an option when you sign up to just create an account. Did you create a blog or just an account?

    Ahhh man, I think you may be correct. I wanted to have a personalized domain name, so I didn’t choose “just gimme a blog”.
    If so, can I “undo” it and turn it into a blog with domain name? Or have I lost my preferred blog name forever?

    …just a “username”.
