Would like to delete my old blog but I can't access the email I used.

  1. How do I delete my old blog? The email address for the account is no long accessible so I can't sign in to delete it.
    Blog url: http://kkocarek.wordpress.com/

  2. In order to help you get access to your blog Staff need one of the following things in order to correctly identify you as the blog owner:

    1. an email from the email address associated with the account or revealing what that associated email address was
    2. the wordpress.com API key for your account. This was included in your welcome email with a note to keep it safe. Please do not post the API key here.
    3. if you have purchased any upgrades for the blog a transaction number

    Do you have any of those?

  3. I can provide #1, the old email address. I believe I would have used [email redacted]

  4. I don't know if that email will show up when you read the comment - but it is k.kocarek @ umiami.edu without the spaces. Hopefully that shows up.

    Thank you.

  5. Thanks. Unlike the rest of us, Staff can see that redacted email address and I flagged this thread for their attention. Please be patient while waiting for a response.

  6. If you can still log in you can set the blog to Private and that will keep everyone out or you can delete the Posts and leave no content in it

  7. I can't log in anymore because I don't remember the password, but can't reset the password since I can't access the email. Thank you for the suggestion though.

  8. If you have lost access to your WordPress.com account, please visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword and click "Need More Help?" if necessary.

  9. Hi, wondering what the status of deleting my old blog is please? Is there any blog Staff who might have an update? Thanks.

  10. Please do exactly what macmanx (Staff) stated above.
