    username change
    I have 2 blogs under 2 different usernames and email adresses. I started my second blog ( only to try out options until I decide a right name and design (which I realize now was a stupid idea) and haven’t used my first blog for over 2 years as its subject is now irrelevant.
    This is where it gets a bit tricky. I was happy with what the options of that second blog therefore I wanted to change the username and name of the blog into the first one ( Realizing I couldn’t do that, I changed the username and name of the first blog into, hoping I could get the name takethatfrance back for my second blog. But everytime I try to change it, it says the name is already used…which is not true anymore as I have changed all the settings of my old blog. I have transfered my second blog ( to my first user account (takethatfrance) but I still can’t change the name emybee although all the settings for my first blog appear with the new name. This is really annoying for me as I wanted to buy the domain

    I am not sure I am very clear in my explanations, I hope I am. If I buy the domain, would I be able to chose which of my blogs I want to associate the domain with? Is it just a matter of time and I just need to wait a few hours before wordpress realises the name of my first blog doesn’t exist anymore? I am completely lost with a simple problem of username!
