    Can people find all my blogs through one of them or are they all separate? I want to keep each of them separate (people cannot click to my own personal private through my main public one). Are they able to? Is there a setting I need to change?
    Blog url: http://soloresidencyinprogress.wordpress.com/

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

    When we register a username account here the email address we provide becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged into WordPress.com and register a blog it’s registered to that username account we are logged in under and to the email address which is our unique identifier. We can register as many blogs as we wish and provided we are using the same username account then all the blogs will be registered under it and the associated email account. We can change our “display name” but that display name will appear on all blogs registered under the same username account.

    In order to completely separate the blogs that you do not want to be associated with each other you register another username account using a different email address when you are logged out of WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Then you add the new username account as an official user of the blog, and designate them (ie. you) as an Admin. Next you transfer one of the blogs to the new username account using this process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    There won’t be direct links to them but do understand that if you have the blogs all registered under the same username it’s not difficult to locate the other blogs. Alternatively, you can get throw away email addresses and proceed as I posted above to disassociate them.
