Hey Mike, the correct way to post your blog is using the generic URL that will contain the name of your blog at the beginning otherwise we have to manually remove the first part (that appears for you after posting your blog) and if we click on it, leads nowhere, so from now on, to link to a particular entry of your blog, click on the title of the entry once that it's posted, example:
https://mikeabreen.wordpress.com/2017/0 ... 6-shyness/
You see that first it contains the name of your blog https://mikeabreen.wordpress.com/
and at the end you will see the number/title of the day you want to post and share here. I also usually suggest to actually copy and paste the content of the blog as well here on the forum if that's something you want to do as well.
Thanks for sharing
