Java Java Data Structures Exploring the Java Collection Framework Sets

Help with challenge

I can't figure out the reason why this code won't compile. When I preview it, it says I am missing a '}' but I can't figure out where.

package com.example;

import java.util.List;
import java.util.Set;
import java.util.TreeSet;
import java.util.HashSet;

public class Blog {
  List<BlogPost> mPosts;

  public Blog(List<BlogPost> posts) {
    mPosts = posts;

  public List<BlogPost> getPosts() {
    return mPosts;

  public Set<String> getAllAuthors(){
    Set<String> authors = new TreeSet<String>();
    for (BlogPost post : getPosts()){

Its not that you have a missing '}', its that you're not returning any data in getAllAuthors(), before the '}' referenced in the error code (when I ran the code, the return statement needs to be before the closing bracket on line 24.)

Does this help?
