Primary vs Secondary Blog

  1. I only have one blog but want to add a second one.

    Why one of them must be a primary blog? I want them to be independent of each other and "equally" important?

    Can the same email address be associated to both?

    Thanks in advance!

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

  2. When we register a username account here the email address we provide becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged into WordPress.com and register a blog it's registered to that username account we are logged in under and to the email address which is our unique identifier. We can register as many blogs as we wish and provided we are using the same username account then all the blogs will be registered under it and the associated email account. We can change our "display name" but that display name will appear on all blogs registered under the same username account.

    In order to completely separate the blogs that you do not want to be associated with each other you register another username account using a different email address when you are logged out of WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

  3. Thanks! The discussion on email adresses makes sense.
    Can you clarify though why if you have two blogs under the same account, one is the primary and what advantages, privileges or whatever does it have over the secondary, terciary one etc? Thanks again!

  4. It means that your username link is linked to the Primary Blog when you leave comments on other blogs.
