Display Name Question

  1. I have 3 different blogs under one username. I have one blog for travel only, another blog for gaming, and the newest blog is about baby. I noticed when I posted a new post in the baby blog and then do a search on it using Search WordPress.com Blogs, it shows my display name for the gaming blog and takes me to the gaming blog if I click on it. I changed the display name to what I use for the baby blog and then noticed in search results that it shows the baby blog display name but takes me to the game blog.

    How do I change the display name so that when someone does a search for baby and clicks on the author instead of the title, it takes them to my baby blog instead of my gaming blog? I've already tried going into the Public Profile under Users for each blog and change the display name, but it seems to be a global change, not blog specific.

    I hope that makes sense.

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

  2. You can only have one blog linked to your display name

  3. Thanks for the reply. But why would WordPress allow you to register another blog with the same user name? Seems like every blog you register under the same user name, you should be able to publish posts under that blogs display name, not one global display name. Doesn't make sense. People who read my gaming blog, most likely isn't interested in a baby blog.

    Are you aware that the email address you use to register your account with is the unique identifier? if you wish to have multiple accounts so the blogs and display names are not associated with each other then you can register as another persona using a different email address for the second blog. There is even a process for transferring a blog in a situation like yours and it's found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    In addition are you aware that although usernames cannot be change we do have the option to use a nickname as a display name? See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/#change-display-name-nickname
