Why doesn't this work?

My code compiles and returns what the question is asking for but it isn't excepted. As far as i can tell, there are no errors and its returning exactly what is asked for...

package com.example;

import java.util.Date;

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

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

    public String toString(){
      return "Blogpost: " + mTitle + " by " + mAuthor";

    public String getAuthor() {
      return mAuthor;

    public String getTitle() {
      return mTitle;

    public String getBody() {
      return mBody;

    public String getCategory() {
      return mCategory;

    public Date getCreationDate() {
      return mCreationDate;

Ah, i figured it out. The "p" in BlogPost needs to be uppercase or the code wont be accepted.
