Change blog name

  1. Hello good people,
    Sorry if this is rather basic. I'd like to keep my username for a new wordpress account but get rid of my blog name and also change the email address I use for this blog. If I delete the blog (which is empty) will I be able to use the username I want to keep, or is that lost, too?

    Any help appreciated.

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

  2. Do not delete the blog! Deleting a URL is irreversible. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled. http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

  3. Provided you are logged in under the username account that registered the blog then, Site titles (Blog Names) and Taglines located here > Settings > General can easily be changed at any time.

    If you mean changing a blog address then there are two approaches you can take.

  4. If you want to change the email address for your account then you have two separate email address settings at WordPress.com.

    Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard.

    Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.

    Try changing it at http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/ first.

    If that doesn't work, try Users -> Personal Settings in your blog's Dashboard.
