Hi Robert,

What I'd try is first:

1) make the BlogPost constructor access modifier public ex. public BlogPost() 2) I'd then make the variables in the constructor's argument without the "m" ex. String Author, String Title, etc 3) in the parameter of the constructor, I'd then set the above variables = to their "m" counterparts ex. Author = mAuthor; Title = mTitle; etc

That's what I would do. Let me know if this works.

Good luck,

Steven Morimoto was correct in his comment above. Here is what the constructor should look like:

public BlogPost(String author, String title, String category, String body, Date creationDate) {
    mAuthor = author;
    mTitle = title;
    mCategory = category;
    mBody = body;
    mCreationDate = creationDate;
