Hate my blog name

  1. I was confused when I chose my blog name, and I hate it! My "Wordpress for Dummies" book says I can't change the blog name. Can I start a new one with the name I want, and hide the old one? I also bought a domain name, so need the new title to appear at that URL. Thanks for any help you can give.

    The blog I need help with is ormebook.com.

  2. Actually, your book is a bit out of date. You can change your blog's address following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

  3. FWIW http://combsorme.wordpress.com/ is correctly redirecting to http://ormebook.com/ for me. I am in Canada.

  4. I did not make myself clear--sorry. I do not want it to say "combsorme blog" across the top. I want to change that name somehow. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

  5. Easy. Go to your Dashboard, then Settings->General. That is where you change it.

  6. Easy. Go to Dashboard, ----> My Blogs, ----> press the column of Address, ---> Change Blog Address. That is where you change it.

  7. That's not what he's talking about. He wants to change the displayed name, not the URL

  8. thats so cool how did you come up with the name raincoaster

  9. I wanted a name that didn't advertise any particular gender and had something to do with Vancouver. Thanks.
