    I need to delete my blog. I have been to my dashboard and looked under tools and have not found a button to delete. Can we please delete letterstomyghost? Thank you.

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

    The problem is, if these instructions worked, I wouldn't have had to come to the community for help. When I get into my dashboard, I don't have a drop-down menu. I can't find "Tools", and when I click on the 'Tool' icon to the left in the gray area, it tells me about the icon, Webmaster Tools, but NOTHING with a drop-down that has 'Delete Blog' as a choice.

    I have been writing to this blog on both iPhone and iPad, not from a desk computer. Could this be why I can't find what I need? Do the instructions work the same for a mobile device?

  4. You must be logged in under the exact username account that registered the blog in question in order to access it and work on it.

    I understand. I did log into the exact username. Something keeps switching me to ofseamistandflame, which is a blog that is new and I have never posted anything in. Why do I log into one and get swapped out to the other? Technically, letterstomyghost is the parent blog, and that is the one I have always logged in to.

    However, this still doesn't help. I tried to delete this blog before ofseamistandflame was created, and I ran into the same issue. I gave up, after a while. Now I am trying to permanently delete it again but keep coming around to the same problem.

  6. Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden
    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility
