    in the FAQ, it states:

    To find your key go to your dashboard and then click on “Profile� (or “My Account�) and you should see a sentence that says “Your WordPress.com API key is:� followed by a string of 12 letters and numbers.

    BUT i can't find it in my account or profile.

    pls advise !

    To repeat:

    "Your WordPress.com"

    You must register there. Once you have, your API key is at the top of your Users profile on your WordPress.com account. You can then use that with a regular old WordPress blog running the Akismet plugin.

    Yes, you have a WordPress blog, but you do not have a WordPress.com blog.

    Please read very closely.
