How can I contact the owner of a blog name

  1. There is a blog address that I would like, that was taken in 2006 and has never been used. I have read the rules on 'Recycling Blog Names', but these rules only applied to deleted blogs.

    Is there any way I could contact the blog owner to ask if I coul take over the name and address.
    Blog url: http://mokesmusings.wordpress.com/

  2. There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

    if you are not successful, you can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
