    emptying blog content
    I would like to start ALL over on my blog using the same name but picking a new theme and starting from scratch with the widgits. How to I delete it all?

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

  2. If you don't have a lot of content and don't wish to wait for Staff to delete it for you then you can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
    bulk delete images & media http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/deleting-files/#bulk-deletion
    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

    Alternatively, if you do have a lot of content, and you do not mind waiting you can tag this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.

    If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, then please reply
    (1)to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty
    and (2) acknowledge that you know deletion is irreversible.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove it from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months.
