I was going to change WP themes on my blog, but found out that you can’t use wp.org themes on wp.com
In addition, I’m looking to change the name of either the atcandela blog (which has not been in use) or the shootfromthehip.us blog to my name.
I have to take into consideration that I will have to change the domain name. But if there is another way where I can change the blog name for now (until the domain expires) would be helpful.
Settings->General you can change the blog name there. That’s separate from the domain upgrade. If you want the domain to be the same as the URL, you’ll have to buy another domain and map that one to your site.
