is it possible to change your wordpress url?

  1. when i originally created my blog, the url inboundmarketingconsultant.wordpress.com was created. after spending some time setting my blog up, i realized i really would prefer the url to be seattle-inbound-marketing-consultant.wordpress.com - is there a way to easily change it or do i need to create a whole new blog?

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

  2. Here at wordpress.com, you cannot use dashes in your URL. Funny rule, but they don't allow it.

    You cannot actually change the URLs here. What you have to do is to create a new blog on your account, then export your stuff from the first blog and import it into the second blog, set up and configure the theme and such.

  3. It's also a good idea to keep the first blog rather than deleting it as you can use it as a test blog and a backup. Note that once a blog is deleted the URL cannot be recycled.
