Serial Monitor on Standalone

Hello folks. I am building a "Standalone" arduino on a breadboard.
I am following the instructions at this link...

I would like to be able to see the phrases "LED is ON" and "LED is OFF" on the serial monitor.
At this moment I cant seem to do it because this is a "Standalone".

How can I see those phrases on the serial monitor ( Ctrl + Shift +M )?

( I do have an Adafruit FTDI, incase that somehow can help.)
( I also have a " AVR ISP USBtinyISP Programmer" incase that can help)

Thank you for your replies!

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600); // open the serial port at 9600 bps:

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);   // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
  Serial.print("The LED is ON!")
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);    // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  Serial.print("The LED is OFF!")
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second

Connect your FTDI to the GND rail & the Rx pin to the Tx pin (pin 3) on the ATMega.

Arduino MEGA.

@GolamMostafa - NOPE ATMega!

Something like pin 3 (Post-2) must be referring to an Arduino Edge Connector. (In the meantime, you have edited your Post-2 where it was "atMega" not "ATMega".)

Post 2 is refering to pin 2, on the ATMega chip the op hase built the standalone circuit with.

Please read the FULL post from the start and this will clear this up for you. :wink:

Thank you for your reply. It worked.
I used an Adafruit FTDI.
