    Hi,

    I have a wordpress/ mlb blog, but I require a URL change

    The URL I want – http://www.littlebabyjaysus.mlblogs.com is available!

    But my desired username is not. I assume that’s because I currently have the URL littlebabyjaysus.wordpress.com.

    So, if I change that URL, will it (and the username Little Baby Jaysus) become available once again, so I can match it up with littlebabyjaysus.mlblogs.com?

    Or, if I take littlebabyjaysus.mlblogs.com will i have to choose a different wordpress URL and username

    I understand the relationship between wordpress and mlb is new, and what I want to do is a bit tricky. I appreciate anything info you could provide to help me do this.
    Blog url: http://littlebabyjaysus.wordpress.com/

    Actually, you won’t be able to register further mlblogs.com names as the service has been discontinued.

    That’s strange because it is currently still possible to sign up for a new mlb blog.

    Were you referring to the arrangement between mlblogs.com and wordpress.com that has been discontinued?

    If not, which service were you referring to – my wordpress/mlb blog is still running smoothly, apart from the url problem.

    Any information and/or suggestions would be helpful and thanks macmanx for the quick response to my original message.

    Basically, MLBlogs moved all of their users to WordPress.com, and now the userbases are shared. Though you can signup for a [blog].mlblogs.com domain, it’s actually a [blog].wordpress.com blog.

    So, you can’t sign up for littlebabyjaysus.mlblogs.com because littlebabyjaysus.wordpress.com is already taken.

    Sorry for the confusion!
