    I was confused when I chose my blog name, and I hate it! My “WordPress for Dummies” book says I can’t change the blog name. Can I start a new one with the name I want, and hide the old one? I also bought a domain name, so need the new title to appear at that URL. Thanks for any help you can give.

    The blog I need help with is ormebook.com.

    Actually, your book is a bit out of date. You can change your blog’s address following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    FWIW http://combsorme.wordpress.com/ is correctly redirecting to http://ormebook.com/ for me. I am in Canada.

    I did not make myself clear–sorry. I do not want it to say “combsorme blog” across the top. I want to change that name somehow. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

    Easy. Go to your Dashboard, then Settings->General. That is where you change it.

    Easy. Go to Dashboard, —-> My Blogs, —-> press the column of Address, —> Change Blog Address. That is where you change it.

    That’s not what he’s talking about. He wants to change the displayed name, not the URL

    I wanted a name that didn’t advertise any particular gender and had something to do with Vancouver. Thanks.
