The blog name I want is taken, but it isnt being used.

  1. I'm starting a new blog. When I tried to enter the name (lifeafterlawschool.wordpress.com), I was told the name was already in use. When I checked out the blog with the same name, it doesn't appear to be in use. That is, nothing has been posted to it. I left a comment for the owner asking if they will be posting and if not, whether I could use the name. I haven't heard back. Is there any chance that WordPress would allow me to take the name?

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.
