    Dear WordPress support team

    Please help me resolve the following problem: I only use my wordpress.com profile to read blogs I like and to leave comments on other wordpress.com sites.
    My own blog is a hosted site on wordpress.org that I moved 6 months ago to a new domain called http://www.stylelounge.com.

    In my wordpress.com profile, the old link http://www.thestylelounge.ca is still listed as my main blog and I can’t seem to change that to http://www.stylelounge.com.

    Can you please help me?
    Many thanks,
    Petra Z.

    The blog I need help with is www.thestylelounge.ca.

    The blog you specified at http://www.thestylelounge.ca does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

    Yes, I know, Mr. Roboto. I am in the right support forum, though:)

    Hi there,
    I flagged this thread for Staff assistance.

    Hi petrazr,

    I see what you’re referring to (the Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page).

    What are your WordPress and Site Address URLs in Settings -> General?

    Can you disconnect, deactivate, and reactivate your Jetpack plugin?

    Hi Bryan

    I am only able to go to Settings > Account and choose for my Primary Blog among either http://www.thestylelounge.ca or styleloungeblog.wordpress.com (which I created at the beginning to have a wordpress account).

    Below the primary blog, I was able to enter the web address, and this is where I entered the URL of my wordpress.org site, which is http://www.stylelounge.com.

    I am not able to locate a Jetpack plugin through my wordpress.com dashboard, I am only able to access that when logging into my wordpress.org profile.

    Many thanks for your help!

    Go to Gravatar.com and change it there.

    It worked! I had to deactivate my Jetpack plugin and once I reactivated it, my wordpress.com account pulled the new information from http://www.stylelounge.com.
    Thanks so much for all your help!
