We are trying to create a new site that we intend to turn into a New Blog Template (site-template1.oursite.com). Once we create a name for the site from within our main account, do we then need to log into the new site as though we're admins and start building? Or, is the idea that we should select the site from our Site's menu, and start adding content, plugins, theme selections etc from there? The latter doesn't seem to work because our new url only produces a blank page and there don't seem to be any site specific styling options when we navigate to the site from our main admin screen.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond.
