I can't get rid of a link!

    Hello!

    I have a problem! I used to write for a WP blog, other then my own. I even went so far as to delete my own, so I could get the link to that particular blog when I commented on others (It would not give it to me never mind what I did before. I had all the settings to make it my default blog, had it linked on my gravatar, but nothing until I deleted my blog on WP) I then signed up with my old blog again (slightly changed as I can't get the same url back obviously).
    Then I stopped writing for that bolg, took all the links off, deleted it from my WP account and now the link is still there. when I comment on other blogs, it will link to this blog I no longer write for! I would like to have it link to mine, but all the settings I am supposed to change are changed!I can't seem to figure out how to fix this! I have deleted everything that connected me to this blog. I don't have it on my gravatar, or even as a bookmark on my laptop (Yes, I am aware that a bookmark won't bother what my avatar links to, just demonstrating that I was thorough in getting rid of everything pertaining to that blog in the first place)
    I need some serious help. I have no idea what to do. If there is a secret setting somewhere, I have not found it after HOURS of searching my account and my settings tab. I haven't been writing or associated with that blog or it's owner in nearly a year now!
    Please help!
    Thank you!

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

  2. You can change the blog your username is linked to easily.
    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

    You can unfollow a blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#unfollow-a-blog as well as leaving a blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#leave-a-blog

  3. You can change the domain name your user name links under the 'Web Address' setting here:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

  4. P.S. I forgot to add that this change of primary blog linked to your username is not retroactive. Comments your left previously will still be linked to the blog you left.
