I'm trying to delete all of the content in my blog

  1. I'm trying to delete all of the content in my blog. I don't want to delete the domain, in case I want it, later. I was told to contact support, per the directions when I go to delete.

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

  2. First go ahead and mark your blog as private, that way no one will be able to see the content you are trying to remove - http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Then from the post page you should be able to select the small square next to Title and select all the posts. You can then unpublish them by saving to drafts or move them to the trash.

    Good idea on not deleting your blog, once a URL is deleted it can no longer be used on wordpress.com

  3. I can't delete my account

    If you don't have a lot of content and don't wish to wait for Staff to delete it for you then you can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
    bulk delete images & media http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/deleting-files/#bulk-deletion
    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

    Alternatively, if you do have a lot of content, you can tag this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and once deleted, the data cannot be recovered. If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, please reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove it from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months.
