"Unlinking" linked blogs

  1. I'm sorry to open a new thread about this issue, but my previous thread was closed without the issue being resolved, and now I have more questions. I used my current username to register a new blog. Then I realized that I would have to post on the newly-registered blog with my current username, and I'd prefer to post with a new username. I can't register the username I want, because it's the same as the blog name I just registered. When I try, I get a message saying that blog name is taken. And it is. By me.

    Is there a way I can register a new username to post on my new blog, without registering another blog name?

    Wonderful TheTimetheif has told me that the username I want is "reserved" for me, but that I will need a mod's help to resolve the issue. It's been 2 months since I originally asked this question, and I'd really like to get started on my new blog. Is there any other way I can ask for help?

    I thought a way to solve this problem would be to register a totally new username and then add it to the blog in question. But I can't register a new username with my email address, because my email address is also "already taken." (!) Is there a way to have multiple usernames with the same email address, or will I have to open a new email account just to get a new name?

    Failing those two options, can I divorce my new blog from my old blog? In other words, delete the new blog that is linked to my old blog, and then re-register it so I can have the username associated with it?

    Are there any other options I'm missing?

    If I had known this would be a problem, I wouldn't have linked the two blogs. I would have just registered the username and blog I want by themselves in the first place. Alas...

    Profuse thank-yous to anyone who can help.

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

  2. Is there a way to have multiple usernames with the same email address, or will I have to open a new email account just to get a new name?

    Multiple usernames with the same email address is not possible. This is because when we create a username account the email address we use becomes out unique identifier.

    So we must log out of wordpress.com and use a different email address to create a new username account.
    You can change both your WordPress.com account username (the name you use to login) and your display name (the name that is seen on your posts and comments). http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/
    There is a transfer process you can use to move the blog to a another username account.
