    If you are logged into WordPress.com and visit a2photographydawnoconnor.wordpress.com you should see a menu in the left side of the admin bar up top with the title of this blog. In that menu there is a link to the dashboard for this blog where you can also manage domain names for this blog under Settings>Domains.

    In addition to this you’ll need to configure DNS through your registar or web host to point your subdomain this wordpress.com site. You can find more information about this from the following link:

    When you hover on the WordPress Icon does it say ‘My Blog’ or ‘My Blogs’?

    If it says ‘My Blog’ then I think you’re logging in to an account for the dawnoconnor.wordpress.com blog, and you have a separate WordPress.com account for a1photographydawnoconnor.wordpress.com… If this is true you should get an error explaining this account does not have permission when you visit http://a1photographydawnoconnor.wordpress.com/wp-admin/.

    What happens if you visit http://a1photographydawnoconnor.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ and add a new post there?

    It would appear you do have two accounts: dawnrosie and dawnrosie1… I did not thing you could be logged in as both at the same time but perhaps I was wrong about that…

    In any case I think you’ll need to either be careful about which account you are logged in as (use one at a time), access your dashboard directly using the wp-admin/ URL, or you may request a transfer of your blog so you only have one account. I would recommend the latter option, but your milage may vary.

    You’ve obviously got something confused somewhere. Maybe you’re logged in under an alternate ID or something.

    In my Dashboard, I can easily select from more than one ‘blog’ (I truly HATE that term).

    There is also a dropdown where I can select them and their dashboards. In the upper right corner of your screen, you should see your username (or a truncated portion of it). When you hover over it, it will drop down and display other options. Something like what is shown in this image:

    ah I see my avatar has now also changed to dawnrosie as opposed to dawnrosie1. Can I alter which blog is my primary one?

    If you wish to set a ‘primary blog’ you need to have more than one blog under one account, I would recommend transferring the blog under your dawnrosie1 account to your dawnrosie account. Then you can select your ‘primary blog’ in your account settings.
