Remove blog, keep account.

  1. I created a personal blog / new account and then no longer wished to use it. I then created a second blog under the same account with a different name because I couldn't figure out how to change the site URL to match the site name. I would like to remove the original blog while keeping the 2nd one unaffected. Is this possible?
    Blog url: http://wanderingwolseley.wordpress.com/

  2. The answer is deleting one blog will not effect the other. I strongly advise that you make the first blog "private" and use it as a test blog or back-up blog. You may wish to use it in the future. You can delete a blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/ but deleting a blog is forever. It takes 3 warnings and a verification link in an email that make it clear the blog URL will be gone forever and the URL cannot be recycled and reused by anyone. http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ That’s why we Volunteers recommend http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/making the blog visibility private and using it as a test blog or a backup blog.

  3. Thanks for the help! I can make the blog private. Having it sit there, empty doesn't bother me. The problem is that my comments and probably all notifications ( as well as this request for help ) are all under the original blog name Catoneiric. I'd rather have it all under the blog I use primarily, Wandering Wolseley.

    Will the change to private switch my comments and notifications to use the Wandering Wolseley name?

  4. No, you have to change that on your Profile page.
