Can you change primary blog email without changing secondary blogs email address

    I want to change the email address for my primary blog (it is a business). However, I want the other two blogs (both personal) to keep the original email. If I change the original email will it automatically change the two secondary blog email addresses?
    Blog url: http://hellerfamilyvineyards.wordpress.com/

  2. If the blogs are all registed under the same username acconut the answer is "no".

    When we register a username account here the email address we provide becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged into WordPress.com and register a blog it's registered to that username account we are logged in under and to the email address which is our unique identifier. We can register as many blogs as we wish and provided we are using the same username account then all the blogs will be registered under it and the associated email account. We can change our "display name" but that display name will appear on all blogs registered under the same username account.

    In order to completely separate the blogs that you do not want to be associated with each other you register another username account using a different email address when you are logged out of WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Then you add the new username account as an official user of the blog, and designate them (ie. you) as an Admin. Next you transfer one of the blogs to the new username account using this process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    I read that more closely and want to answer again. The email address your registered the usename account under and all the blogs under is the unqiue identifier. So "yes" if you change that username email address it will automatically be chnaged for all blogs registered under the same username account.
