Remove blog

  1. I want to remove a blog. What should I do?

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

  2. Hi there,
    You don't need to delete the blog if you don't want to. You can delete all the content and use the blog for another purpose or you can make it private instead.

    Option 1 - delete content - keep URL and/or make blog visibility private
    You can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.

    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

    You may wish to make the blog private http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Option 2 - delete blog knowing the URL cannot be recycled
    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog ie. as the blog's sole owner to delete the blog. It matters NOT how many blogs are registered under the username account as deleting one blog has no affect on any others registered under the same username account.

    To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and must be clicked to delete a blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

  3. Option 3 - delete a blog post or page
    Sometimes people refer to "a blog" as a single post or page in a blog. If that's what you mean, then you can delete any post or page by following these guides:
