Deleting blogs and create a customizable blog with a domain name I own already

  1. Hi I created some blog with nothing inside and want to delete them but I can't find the dashboard when I click on manage blogs and on the 3 hidden blogs I have. Can you telle me how to delete them all except the main on working normally please ?

    in another hand I have bought a domain name on another website. What should I do to benefit from your plateform in order to create another blog with my own design (or a customizable design) ?
    thanks
    Best regards

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

  2. You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog to delete the blog. Deleting a site permanently removes it and you’ll never be able to reuse its WordPress.com address:

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You may want to make the blog private instead > Settings > Reading.

  3. in order to create another blog with my own design (or a customizable design)

    You cannot create your own theme on a free hosted WordPress.com blog.
    You cannot use stylesheets from another theme.
    You cannot upload any third party themes.
    Are you clear on those facts?
    The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are found here > http://wordpress.com/themes/

    If you have CSS editing experience, you can get the paid custom CSS upgrade and renew it annually. It will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but it does not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to WordPress.com.

  4. There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes what I posted above. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want to use any third party theme or build your own theme then don't waste any time here at all. Purchase web hosting http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then move your .wordpress.com blog content into it http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  5. OK thnks
    If I understand there are 3 solutions :
    1/ free themes and I can't change anything except colors and things like that. If I take this one and if there is no more space or if I want in few months to change the design with a professional designer would it be possible and move my content to the new designed blog ?

    2/ Build my own theme on http://wordpress.org/hosting/
    But I already buy my domain name and is it possible in both case to Include it ? If yes (I hope) do I need to pay to include my domain name ?

    3/ CSS themes but I don't have the competencies.

    In another hands, for the 3 blogs that I created there are empty of content it's just the title (which had been created by mistakes) so how can I delete them ? I followed your instructions but it's not working (I am register under visionofgaia)

    Thanks

  6. Hi there,

    Yes, you seem to pretty much understand the situation. Since you already have you own domain, if you want it to be used here with WordPress.com, you will need to purchase domain mapping, which you can read about right here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    In regards to your three blogs with no content, you can delete the sites by following the instructions which are included right here:
