Changing blog name back to original name

  1. Hi!

    I had the blog name pairents.wordpress.com - and changed it to socialcircles.wordpress.com - but i want to change it back to pairents.wordpress.com

    When I try to change it back to the original name, it won't let me. Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks!

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

  2. Did you use this process to change the URL? http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    7. The final option presented on this screen allows you to discard your current address. This option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again. If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog, you can keep the address and purchase the Site Redirect upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    I was interested in reading about the recycling-blog-names link that you posted timethief but it goes to a page about iChat??

  4. I'm sorry that was a wrong link > http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ The bottom line is that what you ask for is not possible. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled.

  5. Oh bummer- thanks for the input! I appreciate it!
