    I have two blogs currently (and more coming) but I’m hoping I can have a different display name for each blog (or something like that) so that I can separate personal blogging from work blogging. Thanks

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

    Hi there,

    By display name, do you mean a different username? Or a different blog name (such as blog1.wordpress.com and blog2.wordpress.com).

    If you are trying to keep your two lives (work and personal) completely separate, then you might want to consider having two usernames. While they aren’t visible often, when you make comments on others’ blogs (and sometimes on your own), your username is displayed and so you may want to consider separating them.

    If that is not as much of a concern, you can keep just one account and create multiple blogs which are totally separate. There is no way to tell that they are all run by the same person unless you draw that connection. You can create the additional blogs by following this help article:

    Thanks but…I have two separate blogs, but if I make any comment in my ‘work’ blog it’s done under my ‘personal’ username/display name – which directly links the two blogs. It’s not the end of the world, but if I am able to have a different username/display name for each blog, that would be better.

    Hi there,

    That’s what I figured you might mean!

    In that case you might want to create a new username and then follow the instructions right here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    To transfer your work (or personal) blog between the two accounts.

    I hope this helps!
