Deleted Blog Addresses and Re-Accessibility Questions

  1. Hello,
    I started a new blog with the intention of using a specific blog address. I was disappointed to discover it had already been taken. But, when I entered that blog's web address, the page revealed that the blog had been deleted. How then , can I access and use that blog's name for my own? Since the original blog was deleted, isn't that name placed back in the database for use by the public again?

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

  2. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled here. Confirm by reading:

    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.
