    I apologize if this seems very simple but I've read the docs on roles and am still unclear. Does a new user have to be associated with a particular blog? I want to give users the ability to be authors of their own blogs but when I create them with the author role they are authors of our main blog not subscribers

    Sounds like you're creating them from the back-end of the main blog, so when you set their role to Author you're making them authors of the main blog. Go to the back-end of a user's blog first, then set their role.
