    I coudln’t decide if I wanted THE in my username.
    Original: THEmodernsavvywoman
    New: modernsavvywoman

    …I do want to include THE, but it says the username is already in use. Both of these usernames are mine, how do I get it back to the original user name: THEmodernsavvywoman. I was indecisive, but I need to have THE to match my other social networking and logo.
    Blog url: http://modernsavvywoman.wordpress.com/

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

    Once you change your username you will not be able to change it back and the old name will not be available for anyone else to use. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

    Please read what Staff (macmanx) says here:

    Blog names are the same as usernames for the most part. Usernames can be turned into blog names, but blog names cannot be turned into usernames. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cant-change-username-because-i-use-same-display-name?replies=5

    themodernsavvywoman.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this blog.

    Ok. I will keep the new one: modersavvywoman.wordpress.com. But now the e-mail is wrong…

    I have (2) emails: THEmodernsavvywoman & modersavvywoman.

    My current blog that is active: modersavvywoman.wordpress.com, the email is THEmodernsavvywoman and I go to change it to the email without THE, and it says the email is already in use. What do I do?

    Pretty much THEmodernwoman.wordpress.com has email modernwoman
    modernwoman.wordpress.com has email THEmodernwoman….they are backwards and need changed. What do you recommend?

    The email address you used when registering your WordPress.com account is listed in:
    the Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page, or
    Users -> Personal Settings in your dashboard

    Last question, I promise! Everything is squared away with my blog and re-configured. However, when I share my blog post on Twitter, it shows my personal twitter account as the author, and not the Twitter account I am sharing on or using for my blog. How does that get fixed?

    My blog originally was under my name and linked to my personal twitter account. I’ve updated the username, email, and URL…but my twitter hasn’t been taken off. What do you recommend.

    You can see the post at @modsavvywoman then you’ll see the author is incorrect.
