    Also note that deleting a blog does NOT result in instant deletion of indexed content from the SERPs (search engine pages results). We have no control over that. Bing and Google only flush their caches of indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 – 6 months.

    If you are referring to this blog then it appears to be deleted:
    persacostructionllc.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog.

    Are you referring to another one? If so then post the URL for it please.

    For starters if you can get into the Dashboard – set the blog to “Private” which will keep everyone out while this gets sorted out

    Dashboard >> Settings >> Reading >> I would like my site to be private, visible only to users I choose

    ~~TT – once in a while I think of a good idea :) – on the flip side all of us have suggested to people that they set a blog to Private and not delete it in case they want to use it next year – – and many of the Delete issues are also where the owner can’t get into the Dashboard at all – so thinking Private is not really an option –

    But having many people helping in the forum helps to bring different ideas to help people

    I forgot to post the set your blog to private sentence and you supplied it. Now that’s great teamwork. You always think of good ideas. I’ve seen you post them many times.

    Are you logging in with the correct account name?

    You need to be the blog owner and Admin to delete a blog or change the visibility – it you can’t see the option I gave above then you are probably not logged in with the correct account or user name
