changing the wordpress.com blog address

  1. Hi there,

    So I only have one wordpress site right now, (humankindbodywork.wordpress.com- it's private because it's under construction). However, I want to switch the address back to my self-titled business name, emilygowenbodywork.wordpress.com, which I had it under before. Now the site is saying that name is already taken! However, I'm pretty positive it's taken by me... is there a secret way I can change it back? How do I do this? Or do I have to buy the .com? I will probably buy the .com anyway, but I'd rather have time to make the decision. Thanks!

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

    emilygowenbodywork.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site.

    Sorry but there is no way to recover the URL you deleted because there is no recycling of deleted blog URLs here at WordPress.com. Confirm by reading http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/ and
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/
    Prior warning of this is given to prevent accidental deletions by insuring everyone who deletes a blog has been warned that what they are doing is irreversible.

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

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