Domain name vs blog name switching....

  1. I have taken the domain address (name/blog/url )
    convergentfutures.wordpress.com

    and set up a blog named missing modules that I need to be a sub-blog with its own domain blog URL .

    In addition, now when I try to go back and create my other blog also named Convergent Futures and connect it to the original convergentfutures.wordpress.com I receive the message that I cannot do this because it is already taken... 3 hours running around screens that indicate I can change all this later???

    help. I want to get all of this straightened out before I decide which of them I want to make primary and go premium with. Also where do I find intelligible info about multiple blogs vs website? or how to build multiple blogs into a website?

    thankyou

    PS you should have some organigram or structural layout images for those of us who need to see structure in order to understand...

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

  4. What other blog address are you trying to create?

    Note that you can't have multiple blogs on a site, but blog posts can be ordered on category

    You can also follow the steps in this guide if you want to use WordPress.com to create a website: http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

  5. Happiness Engineer!

    Hi K... thank you for getting back to me. Here is the problem:

    1) I set up my domain name as convergentfutures.wordpress.com with the intention of calling the blog convergentfutures

    2) then I ended up adding content that was not appropriate to that theme so I renamed it: MissingModules in order to not have to redo everything

    3) so my question is first how do I change the domain url name/address to missingmodules.wordpress.com

    4) this is requisite and urgent because I need to set up the the blog ConvergentFutures with using the domain name/address URL as convergentfutures.wordpress.com which I plan to go premium with

    so how do I re-URL missing modules and save the convergent futures URL but set it up with its own content???

    I can do the web piece separately... or am I missing the point and should be doing both in a single site?

    new to all this and not so versed, so apologies for taking your time.

  6. Currently you have 1 blog: convergentfutures.wordpress.com . If you're planning to purchase a domain registration upgrade, you can decide to attach that to one of your blogs (if you create more).

    so my question is first how do I change the domain url name/address to missingmodules.wordpress.com

    To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps. Another alternative is to purchase a custom domain name to take "wordpress" out of the domain altogether.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

  7. According to the fine print, if I create a new blog URL for MissingModules I will lose access to the URL ConvergentFutures and that it will go dead and I will not be able to use it again?!?

    In other words, I understand that I can change the URL for MM but how do I salvage my URL Convergent Futures so that it does not go dead?!

  8. That only happens when you rename an existing blog address.

    In other words, I understand that I can change the URL for MM but how do I salvage my URL Convergent Futures so that it does not go dead?!

    In that case you can create an additional blog at http://wordpress.com/signup .
