Hello there, I'm catching a compiler error and I don't know why?

The editor tells me I should have a curly bracket in my BlogPost class- BlogPost(){ ^{

package com.example;

public class BlogPost() {

import com.example.BlogPost;
public class Display {
  public static void main(String[] args) {

    BlogPost blog= new BlogPost();
    System.out.printf("This is a blog post:     %s %n", blog);

Because you use parenthesis in the class

package com.example;

public class BlogPost() { //<------- here


public class BlogPost { //<------- just remove the parenthesis


Thank you that worked :)
