deleting blogs from WP.com profile?

  1. Hi..
    I used to have blogs at wordpress.com a long time ago. After that, I had a few wordpress self-hosted blogs. I used my old wordpress.com profile's API key to use WP-STATS plugin. I have deleted my old wordpress.com blogs so all I have in my wordpress.com profile are my self hosted blogs.
    My problem is.. some of these self hosted blogs don't exist any more and I want to unlink them from my wordpress.com profile.. There may be no good reason to do this.. i just don't like seeing the other old blog addresses in my profile. I want the profile to be clean and only show my latest active blog.
    Is there a way to delete these blogs from my wp.com profile? I can't seem to find it anywhere.
    I am aware of the fact that deleting wordpress.com blogs removes them from your profile. But I have self hosted wordpress blogs linked to my profile and I want to unlink these blogs.
    Thanks for your help.. and sorry if my question was a little too detailed.

    The blog I need help with is www.munimkazia.com.

  2. The blog you specified at http://www.munimkazia.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don't understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.

  3. To remove the self-hosted blogs that no longer exist from your dashboard, you will have to contact staff directly.

    Log out of wordpress.COM, then go to http://support.wordpress.COM/contact/ and then click on "I don't have a blog" and then you can use that form to contact staff.

    Include all the details on what blogs you want removed from your account.

  4. Yes my blog is self hosted.. not hosted on wordpress.com.
    I would have posted this question at wordpress.org support forums.. but my problem is with my wordpress.com profile, not the wordpress.org blogging software or my website.
    Do I still post the question over there?

  5. @thesacredpath:
    thanks.. I will give it a shot.

  6. Yes it worked.. the support deleted the old blogs from my profile. Thanks for your help!

  7. You're very welcome.

  8. Help Me. I want to delete my blog. It is an old one and it keeps turning up in search engines which I do not want. How can I delete it?

    I have 4 blogs in my account but I really only need one of them. What do I do? I can't find the delete action anywhere?

  9. Any unused blogs you can set to private (settings > privacy) and then they will not be indexed by search engines, or

    To delete blogs from your account, go to dashboard, make sure you select the blog that you want to delete from the "my dashboard" pulldown (and see the name of that blog at the top of the screen) and then go to settings > delete blog.

    Do read the first couple paragraphs of this support document very carefully: http://support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/ . If you delete the blog, you can NEVER get it back.
