    If you just want to show your name differently please only change your Display Name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/
    If you wish you can logout of WordPress.com and register a new username account. Then you can log in under your original account and add the new username as an Admin. That will put you in a position of being able to transfer the blog from the original username account to the new username account.

    Hi, thanks!
    I am thinking in buying a domain: crivorotscigliano.com, but would like to make sure that all my current blog (silviaemarciaemny.wordpress.com), like current design, posts, comments and traffic are going to be transferred to the new address (crivorotscigliano.com) and keep the same…
    Also, if someone types the current address (silviaemarciaemny.wordpress.com), will she be transferred to the new one (crivorotscigliano.com)?

    many thanks again, I appreciate your help!
    Silvia

    If you want to change your existing __.wordpress.com address for a __.com address, the domain mapping upgrade does just that. If you follow all the steps, your old __.wordpress.com address will automatically redirect to your new __.com address.
