    I got my blog set up with wordpress blog and was able to open a previous blog of yours, no problem there.

    The one need for tomorrow says ” it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don’t have” with a SSL error message. Do you know how to correct this? I much appreciate your assistance.
