Two Domains - One with Pen Name the Other Not

  1. I would like my pen name not to be used / shown on my second Domain. In fact I would like these to be truly separate. One I want for professional reasons, thus not connected to what I write in my private life. I don't want my "About" to show up on my professional domain, which also has assigned to it a separate email.

    Is this possible?

    The blog I need help with is valentinelogar.com.

  2. Yes. When we register a username account here the email address we provide becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged into WordPress.com and register a blog it's registered to that username account we are logged in under and to the email address which is our unique identifier. We can register as many blogs as we wish and provided we are using the same username account then all the blogs will be registered under it and the associated email account. If we choose to have a nickname (display name) then it applies likewise to all the blogs will be registered under the associated email account.

    In order to completely separate the blogs so they aren't associated with each other you register another username account using a different email address when you are logged out of WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Then you add the new username account as an official user of the blog, and designate them (ie. you) as an Admin. Next you transfer one of the blogs to the new username account using this process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

  3. Thanks, I had a sinking feeling this would be the case. Well such is life and thus it is off to separate!
