    I am trying to switch to a self hosted blog. I don’t even know how I connected this blog address to the WordPress.com account, but now I am trying to delete it (I think I already deleted it from my self-host) and I can’t open it up to delete it from my WordPress.com account. I can’t open the dashboard for this blog and when I do it says:

    “running-on-healthy.wordpress.com doesn’t exist

    The address running-on-healthy.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed. But you can sign up and choose another one.”

    Would love suggestions on how to get rid of this blog.

    The blog I need help with is 69.195.124.78.

    I also disconnected the Site Mapping and it still is taking me from http://www.running-on-healthy.com to runningonhealthyblog.wordpress.com how long does this take to stop? I cannot create my new site for http://www.running-on-healthy.com on WordPress.org until the Site Mapping cancels as every time I click to open the Admin URL http://www.running-on-healthy.com///wp-admin it says:

    “running-on-healthy.wordpress.com doesn’t exist

    The address running-on-healthy.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed. But you can sign up and choose another one.”

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    That extra blog you mentioned was linked to your WordPress.com account via Jetpack. That can happen if you connect Jetpack from a self-hosted blog to your WordPress.com account and then change the self-hosted blog’s address. I removed the extra blog from your account, and the address http://www.running-on-healthy.com/ is pointed to your self-hosted blog, so you’re all set now.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions. :)
