    I’m trying to create a new simple blog — I just want a free account, with a domain myname.wordpress.com. I selected the free plan, but every time I go through a wizard to create my blog, it takes me to the domain mapping section (which is part of the paid plan). I can’t figure out how to go around that and just get my free blog.

    Hi there,

    Here is visual instructions on how to create a free .wordpress.com site:

    Step 1: Select email, username, and password.
    Step 2: select Blog for a .home.blog free site or Business for a .wordpress.com site.
    Step 3: Select the Topic of your site.
    Step 4: Type in the Title of site (optional).
    Step 5: Type in the full, exact site address you want including the .wordpress.com or .home.blog subdomain (ex: freeexamplesite.wordpress.com, freeexampleblog.home.blog). The first option should be the free site that you manually typed in. Click select next to that option.
    Step 6: At the very top, click the link that says: start with a free site.

    Then, your free site should be created! Please follow those steps and if you have any questions, let us know. Thanks!
