    I no longer want to use my blog and wish to close it down. How do I remove my name and email from the site?

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

    You can set your blog to Private and that means nobody else can read it, or delete it entirely if you NEVER want to use it or the URL again, but you can’t delete your user account.

    You don’t have to move it. You can just buy a Domain Upgrade and use the subdomain blog.blablabla.com while leaving the hosting here.

    If you do want to move the blog completely away, go to Dashboard->Tools->Export and export everything there, including media. Then on your website, you can import it.

    @nvldai, on your website you will have to set up a subdomain (blog) and then install the wordpress.ORG software. Check with your web host as most have scripts that will install it for you and only require you to answer a few questions. You can then import your content to that new installation.

    A couple suggestions:
    1. Keep current on wordpress, plugin and theme updates (that will all be on you)
    2. Do regular backups and make sure the backups include the MySQL database. If you post everyday, I would recommend backing up at least every couple weeks so that if something does go wrong, you won’t lose too much stuff.

    I would recommend backing up every time you make a change. But I am super cautious about data loss.
