Based on the feedback we've got, we have re-design our signup process. The change is mainly to simplify it in order to improve the user experience and minimize the work and inconvenience for the users.
With the new signup process, user will not need to verify their blog. In order words, users will not need to create a "test post". All you need to is to fill out the signup form and paste the one-line code to your templates, then you are all done!
We are excited to make this improvement just in time to welcome the new year!
Happy New year!
