    I want to free up my site address so someone else can use it. Then delete it.

    I’m just moving on and I already have everything self hosted and just don’t need the remnants floating around the internet :)

    Thanks!

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

    Don’t delete the site if you want another person to be able to use it – once a name (URL) is deleted it is gone forever

    Clear the site of all content: http://en.support.wordpress.com/empty-site/

    Then make a single Post that says the site is available for someone else / for sale or whatever – then you can either have a contact form for someone to email you or just set the comments to moderate so you are sent an email if someone leaves a comment asking about the blog name

    then if you agree with someone that they can have the blog – you can transfer the blog to them from Dashboard >> My Domains >> Mouse over the blog name and click on Transfer – follow the directions and make sure you spell the account name correct or you will send the blog into space and need to have the staff retrieve it for you

    Good luck
