How to change my URL?

  1. This might be a dunce question, but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm still learning how to maneuver the site, but my patience has been worn thin!

    I would like to change my URL to the actual name of my blog instead of my real name, does anyone have any advice on how to do so?

    I'm sure its probably right in front of my face, but unfortunately I don't think I am looking in the right place!

    Thanks, bloggers.

    Best,
    Joanne

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

  2. The URL of your blog is http://thegotogirl.wordpress.com . If you mean how to change the name displayed when you post a comment, go to Users > My Profile, fill in the name you prefer in the "Display name publicly as" box, scroll down and click Update Profile.

  3. The name of my blog is The Go To Girl, where as my URL is joannemaye.wordpress.com, but I would like it to be thegotogirl.wordpress.com, is there anyway how to change that?

    As of right now, thegotogirl.wordpress.com, is an empty site.

    Thanks!

  4. http://thegotogirl.wordpress.com/ and the /thegotogirl username was apparently registered sometime back in 2008 (May 2008 to be exact) and if you didn't register it, then the only way to try and get it is to leave a message on that blog to see if the owner would transfer it to you. WordPress.COM does not delete or give away unused or abandoned blogs.

    The other way would be to buy a domain and the domain upgrade, but thegotogirl.com is already taken. The gotogirl.net though is not.
