my deleted URL still isn't available for my new blog to take the name!

  1. Hello,
    I changed the name of one of my blogs so that a blog i was building could then take on that name. I tried to change the new blog into the URL of the previous deleted blog but it says that the blog is still unavailable. When I type the old URL into my browser it says that the author has deleted this blog...!
    Can you please help!
    Thanks!!!

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

  2. To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent and irreversible. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and must be clicked to delete a blog. If clicking that link does not work then copy and paste it into your upper browser window and click.

    You cannot recover or register any deleted blog URL. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping.

  3. thanks for the response. I am so frustrated with myself!! Is there no way to do a re-direct even though there records show that I was the original owner of that URL?
