Changing user display name on specific blogs

  1. This is a general question about the blogs.
    I'm aware you can change the display name - I already did it to "Admin" on one of my blogs, then reverted it back to my usual display name, but it does it on all the blogs I noticed; is it not possible to have display name change per-blog on this site?

    Sorry if this seems like a stupid question; any help's appreciated!

  2. When we register a username at WordPress.com we provide an email address and it becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged into WordPress.com under that username every blog we register is registered under that username. If we chnage the display name (nickname) then that's the name that appears on all blogs registered under the same username account.

    If we wish to have blogs that are not associated with each other then we can register another username under a different email address while we are logged out of WordPress.com. After we have done that we can add the new username account as an Admin and transfer blogs between usernames by following these instructions.
