    I wanted to try WP out before I switched over from Blogspot. Now that I’m more used to it, I imported my blogspot content to a new blog but want to delete the ‘practice’ blog. How do I do that?

    The blog I need help with is margotes21.wordpress.com.

    I initially set up a blog and accidentally requested a dot com address. I now appear to have a dot com site – which I don’t want and haven’t paid for. I created a new blog with the free wordpress address. If I delete the dotcom blog (which now appears to be my main website address) will I lose the new blog that I have created?

    @smedleygeorgeradar You only have a domain mapping upgrade at WordPress.com, the domain itself is registered elsewhere. You can cancel the domain mapping upgrade at https://smedleygeorgeradar.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=my-upgrades . It won’t affect your blog content.

    Thank you for this speedy reply. I understand the domain mapping process and my domain (smedleyradar.com) is indeed registered elsewhere. I have now canceled the dmain mapping or the time being. But I still appear to have smedleyradardot.com.wordpress.com as a blog site. It is this one that I want to delete. Is it possible to delete this blog address without losing smedleygeorgeradar.wordpress.com
    Apologies if this sounds a little confusing!
