Hey Ambria, I went ahead and fixed your post. HTML code won't show up unless you format it properly, so check out that markdown cheatsheet when you get a chance.

This step is asking you to set the textarea id to comment. This is what you've written -

<textarea id="bio" name="comment"></textarea>

Here you have the id set to bio and name set to comment, so this isn't what we want. According to the code challenge, this is what you would need to type -

<textarea id="comment"></textarea>

Hope this helps!
