Linking/Syncing .com and self-hosted sites

  1. Oh where to begin.....

    So I have a self-hosted blog (jadedtech.com) and at some point in my past I obviously setup a wordpress.com site.

    Here are my issues:

    1/ The admin I setup for the .COM is not the email address I want it to be (completely unrelated actually....)
    2/ I have no idea how the two sites are linked and I don't seem to be able to find out through any settings that I can see.
    3/ I am wondering if it is just easier to delete this account and start fresh? (Rather than trying to sync the 120 MORE posts on the self-hosted site to the .com site).

    So, just at a loss where to start here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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

  2. 1) just change it. You have to change it on your Profile AND on the Dashboard->Settings->General

    2) They aren't linked. They are entirely separate.

    3) I can't answer this until I know what you're trying to do. Are you trying to have the same posts in two places? That's doable, but search engines will see it and assume you are a spammer and they will downgrade every site that has the material on it. If you are trying to use your WP.com site as a backup of your other site, staff have asked that it be set to private. You can use it this way by simply Exporting your posts from the other site and importing them here.
