I just took a look, and it looks like you got the volunteering part squared away, and I confirmed your membership. So, you're now able to add your family members and research.
I did want to suggest that you edit the tag on your profile to be just PHILLIPS.
Tags are clickable, and if you use a single surname, location or historical event, you'll be taken to a page that will list other genealogists who are also interested in that topic. There will be another tab on that page that will show you any profiles that have been created using the surname you entered.
Have fun getting to know the site, and please don't hesitate to ask question in G2G! It's the best place to get quick answers. :-)

p.s. Now that you're a confirmed member, you'll have room to add up to 20 tags to your profile. Go crazy!! ;-)
