    I cant change my url name.

    I recently fully deleted my blogs that I don't use anymore. But I would like to use the URL from one of the ones I deleted for my current blog. (Soapboxsurgeon.wordpress.com)

    It says that url already exists even though I just deleted it.

    Can you help?

    The blog I need help with is ghostdadmusic.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm sorry you did not take the 3 warnings required to delete a blog seriously. The sad news is that deleted blog URLs are not recycled here. Confirm by reading:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain vis a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.

    If you delete a blog you will not be able to get it back and no one else will be able to use that blog address. You must be sure you never want to use the blog again if you delete it.

    Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over the address of a blog that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner. Please do not submit support requests asking us to do this.
