Please help me , I don't know why I'm wrong. Step 2 of 3.

The instructions are: now add a constructor that accepts author, title, body, category and creation date. In your constructor, initialize the private variables you created in Step 1 using the arguments passed in.

com/example/BlogPost.java
package com.example;
import java.util.Date;

public class BlogPost {
  private String mTitle;
  private String mAuthor;
  private String mBody;
  private String mCategory;
  private Date mCreationDate;

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

Your constructor name has to match the class name (case sensitive). Everything else looks good to me so far.

package com.example;

import java.util.Date;

public class BlogPost {
  private String mTitle;
  private String mAuthor;
  private String mBody;
  private String mCategory;
  private Date mCreationDate;

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