Why can't I log into minecraft with a mojang account?

I created a Mojang account and downloaded the Minecraft launcher, but when I started it up, I couldn’t log in. Since the log in fields did not require a username, I tried typing in my email, and still couldn’t log in. I’ve tried after resetting my password, but that didn’t work either. What am I supposed to do to log in and play?

    Mojang accounts are not Minecraft accounts. You can get a Mojang account for free (it requires no username), but you must actually buy Minecraft to play it. When you buy Minecraft, you will be asked for a username.
