Instantiate?

I am not sure what instantiating is or how to do it. I did a quick google search and tried to follow an example. Maybe someone could point out where I messed up?

com/example/BlogPost.java
package com.example;

public class BlogPost {
}
Display.java
import com.example.Blogpost
public class Display {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    int BlogPost
   System.out.printf("This is a blog post: %s" BlogPost);
  }
}

"Instantiate" is just a techie word for "make an object". This is usually done using the "new" operator.
