I have several blogs in my name. I want 1 to be anonymous, can I do this?

  1. OK, I already have several - one for work, two for someone else, one for an ongoing creative writing thing, one for a project that hasn't started yet. Now I've registered another one, again for a separate project. I'd like this one to be anonymous, in that readers won't know my identity or that I'm the same person that has the other blogs. Is this possible? I know you can mark a blog private, but once people have subscribed, then anything you post is presumably visible under the identity under which you have registered? I want to be like Belle du Jour (except not as interesting, haha) - no-one will know who I am.
    Is the only answer to register again with WordPress, under a pseudonym?

    The blog I need help with is gettingfitby50.wordpress.com.

  2. 'd like this one to be anonymous, in that readers won't know my identity or that I'm the same person that has the other blogs. Is this possible?

    Yes. Log out of WordPress.com first. Create another username account using an different email address but don't register a blog -- just a username please. Then log out. Login in under the original username and make the new username account and Admin of the blog in question. Then use the process to transfer the blog in question to the new username account > Transferring Your Blog to Another User or Account

  3. Thanks for the advice. I set up the new username account and made it an administrator like you said, but the system wouldn't let me transfer the blog - maybe it takes time for the setting up of the new username account to take effect. Anyway, I've decided to postpone transferring until I've got a bit more content on the blog - it's private for now anyway. I'll wait a while till I've got a nice lot of interesting content on there, then I'll transfer it over and go public!

  4. Hello again,
    If you need Staff help with the transfer then here's the link. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.
