I just created a new blog and I'd like to add a plug-in to the blog.

I am following this tutorial on how to do it, but on my admin screen there is no "Plugins" option (under "Appearance").

What am I doing wrong? What can I do to get my desired plugin for my blog?

By created do you mean you installed WordPress .org on your hosting account or you had registered for a blog at WordPress .com service? Latter does not support user-installed plugins. – Rarst Sep 25 '12 at 20:14
Do you host your own blog (did you download the software and install it yourself)? Or is this blog hosted on WordPress.com? – EAMann Sep 25 '12 at 20:14
This blog is hosted on WordPress.com. – user16246 Sep 25 '12 at 20:17
wordpress.com administration questions are off topic here. They have their own support forum where you may get better help. – toscho Sep 25 '12 at 20:25

You can't add plugins on wordpress.com, only on self-hosted sites.
