    Hi there,

    I need to change my blog’s name from The Print List to The Prints List because that makes more sense for a book review blog. Only problem is I don’t know how to do it and I’d rather not create another blog if there’s an easy setting that I’m overlooking. Please help!

    Thanks!

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

    You can change the blog title and/or tagline at any time here > Settings > General
    You cannot change the URL though and once you delete a URL it’s gone forever. What I would do is purchase domain mapping and the domain name I want. Then it doesn’t make any difference what the root blog URL is as all visitors will be seamlessly redirected.

    Hi timethief,

    Thanks for the response. Yes, that does makes sense but I’m not looking to purchase a domain at this point. I just deleted the blog and started over with the new name. Good thing I didn’t have much posted!

    Thanks for the help!

    Even if you had a bunch posted, it is just a matter of exporting the contents and importing into the new blog. It is quite an easy and quick process.
