I had started building a blog on WordPress.com. Then I discovered I should really be using WordPress. So I deleted all the data I had input on WordPress.com. However, I read the warning that if I deleted the site, I would never be able to use the domain name again. I have started rebuilding my blog using WordPress, and using the same domain name. Can I safely delete the WordPress.com site? Currently, I just have it set as private so no one can read it.
The blog I need help with is retiretolife.wordpress.com.
