    On my admin page I get the message:

    Akismet is not active. You must enter your WordPress.com API key for it to work.

    How do I find that API?

    Go to WordPress.com and register, and you'll get your API key.

    Note that you don't have to actually register for a blog there - you can simply register as a "user" to get the API key.

    OK, I went there and I already have a WordPress.com blog

    http://psyberspace.wordpress.com

    The one I want API for is

    http://www.thousandsketches.com/blog

    But I assumed the API from the older blog was ok, and it would seem so.

    Yeah, you can reuse it for whatever.... at least so far.

    none of this makes sense. i have a WP hosted blog with Akismet already installed and activated. i cannot find the api key anywhere. i tried the register with wordpress.com etc but obviously my blog url doesnt link in with the new wordpress.com api which is just a username registration,

    i have seached through all the posts on this topic but still cannot figure out where this api key is - its certainly not in my profile!

    thanks

    Your API key is at wordpress.COM.
