How to delete my old blog and change my username to my new blog?

    I want to use a new username and delete my old primary blog. When I comment on blogs, clicking my username goes to my OLD blog, which I do not want.

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

  2. You can change the primary blog linked to your username to any other blog that is registered under the same username. See here http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2007/10/06/link-your-username-to-your-blog/

    You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered a blog to delete the blog. To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent and irreversible. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and must be clicked to delete a blog. If clicking that link does not work then copy and paste it into your upper browser window and click. Once clicked the blog URL is forever gone, gone, gone. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.
