How do I find out if a blog name is taken?

  1. I am interested in changing my blog name and url by starting a new blog and I am wondering how I go about checking to see if it is taken already in wordpress.

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

  2. Log and then point your browser to http://wordpress.com/signup to register your new blog, and if it's not available the software will tell you. BTW there is no other way.

  3. I'm sorry I forgot a word in my first post above and the spellchecker didn't catch it.

    "Log in and then ... "

    Also know that although you can change a blog name and tagline at any time here > Settings > General, you cannot "change a .wordpress.com URL" except by purchase of a domain name and domain mapping.
