    I would like to change my URL to snacksandtracks, but someone already holds this, although their blog is empty of content, i have sent them a message requesting them to use it or let me change mine...do I have any other options, as I don't really want to leave wordpress.
    Blog url: http://irrelevantlyirreverent.wordpress.com/

  2. do I have any other options,

    No.

    If you can't make contact, or if they don't want to give it up, there are no other options.

  3. There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

    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.
