    It posted faster than I expected. I have had a free blog on wordpress.com for about a year and a half. I want to spruce it up a bit, and I have a problem that was not answered here. Do I get free tech support with the $99 a year upgrade?

  4. This is the Categorizes and Tags block that appears on a single post on your blog:

    Filed under Mind, Non-duality, Musings, Heart, Advaita, spirituality, memoir, astonishing beauty, feelings, Open Path, awareness, Inquiry, Dzogchen

    Tagged as spirituality, non-duality, Advaita, memoir, Open Path, Dzogchen, freedom, mind, awareness, paying attention, present moment, Direct experience, spiritual search, embodying realization, truth, end of the search, Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle

    Here are the reasons for non-appearance on the Topics ie. categories and tags pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

    What you are doing (inadvertently) is called spamdexing AKA as tag spamming. The rule of thumb is assign the least number of relevant categories and tags to any post.

    As you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.

  5. You have free tech support here, and if you had a problem at any time in the last year and a half it would have been answered within about ten minutes on average, free. Paid upgrades have as TT noted, email support from paid staff and I believe some upgrades also come with live chat support in business hours.

    There is no point in moving to the next level with the blog until you address the issue TT raised, ie too many tags. Fixing that is going to have a greater positive effect on the blog than any upgrade you could ask for.

  6. I need to install chat rooms on my blog as part of a college language teaching assignment. I even paid for the upgrade thinking that would help. I didn't really have the money for this, and am starting to panic. i only have 20 hours to complete this. Please help.

    My domain is .org but I set the blog up on wordpress.com

    Thank you

    I will change my tagging immediately.

    My problem that I posted was never answered here on the forum:

    I want my second blog, which is for real estate hints, to go to my Facebook real estate page. But because my first, personal blog goes to my facebook page, I could find no way, on the second blog, to get it to go to a second Facebook page.

    I'll correct tagging on my real estate blog as well: SonomaPresence is its name.

    To disassociate two blogs registered under the same username account and email address you need to
    1. register another username account with a different email address;
    2. make that new username account an Admin of the blog you want to transfer;
    3. use this process to transfer the blog > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    Dear timethief,
    Here's what I want to do, to make the two blog names and addresses make more sense. I want my first, personal, blog (Heart of the Matter) which right now is skyeblaine.wordpress.com to become amritaskye.wordpress.com, associated with the email address [email redacted] (because Amrita is my spiritual name, and I want that associated with the spiritual blog)

    I want the second blog (SonomaPresence) to become skyeblaine.wordpress.com, associated with the email address skyeblaine.wordpress.com -- because Skye Blaine is my business name is real estate.

    Your helpful steps above don't quite cover this...

    I'm thinking I would first change Heart of the Matter to the email address [email redacted], (I just did that step.)
    And then change the username to amritaskye, so the address becomes amritaskye.wordpress.com? Will my followers still be able to find my blog?
