Why can't I change my blog address?

  1. What can I do if the blog address is reserved?
    It says that the new address I want is reserved but when I type the URL, it says that the address does not exist. I assume it means that I can still take it. But, why can't I change the name of my blog from whatstheocassion.wordpress.com to whatstheoccasion.wordpress.com?

    Note, I got the spelling wrong the first time. I was just trying to correct it so I made the change. It's my first time to use WordPress, or any blogging site, ever. I hear wordpress has a good customer support. I hope you can help me.

    Thank you very much!

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

  2. whatstheoccasion.wordpress.com doesn’t exist and can only be registered by the person with the matching username account.
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/profile/whatstheoccasion

    When we register a username account the matching blog is reserved for our future use. It cannot be obtained by anyone other than the person who has registered the matching username account.

  3. Cool, now I know. In fact, I just accepted that I can't change it anymore so I wrote a post about it:

    whatstheoccasion.wordpress.com

    Hope you can drop by!

    Thank you very much, timethief!
