re-establishing a blog with a deleted name

  1. I had set up a secondary blog on my site and then decided i needed to have it as a completely new account as different people would have to access it. It was cobblestoneatspringcreek.wordpress.com. I deleted the blog, confirmed with the email that was sent. Then I tried to open a new account with the name cobblestoneatspringcreek but it has been telling me the name is already been taken. Do I just have to wait for a day or two to see if the name clears?

    The blog I need help with is usu4250.wordpress.com.

  2. cobblestoneatspringcreek.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site.

    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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    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.
