  1. how do i change my blog-link?

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

  2. Do you mean your blog address ie. the URL to another .wordpress.com blog URL?

    If "yes" then you must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account in order to change the blog's URL. Then you can use this guide http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    You need to click on the "My Blogs" that is under the WordPress logo drop-down menu in the upper left hand corner of your dashboard. You need to click on the "My Blogs" link under the "Dashboard" drop-down menu instead. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/user-domain-url?replies=3#post-1376051

    That option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again.

    If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog, and retain and page rank the blog has or authority your have gained in the niche then you can keep the address and purchase the Site Redirect upgrade.

    Or do you mean you want to purchase a domain?

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.
