how do I make available a new address after deleting the one I wanted currently?

  1. I created a blog site, with a different name to start my blog over...however I did not realize that you could automatically change the address of your current blog. So I deleted the new one and wanted to change the blog address of my current blog, it does not allow me to use the address I want because it already has been used, I go to the old address and it says it no longer exists, how can I solve this problem? Thanks

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

  2. Hi there,
    Sorry but you cannot recover or register any deleted blog URL. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping.

  3. I'm sorry, but I think you won't be able to reuse the name of the deleted blog.

    Here's the formal explanation from WordPress.com on Recycling Blog Addresses (URLs)
