    I just created a new blog with my current account but I am planning to delete the old blog and just use the new one. So how do I change the new one to my primary blog.

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

    Don’t delete the old blog. Make it private instead because deleted blog URLs are not recycled here.

    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes. Note: This is not a retroactive change. Former comments you made will remain linked to the other blog.

    What do you mean by not recycled?

    Hi again,
    Blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. When we delete a blog that blog address (name) URL cannot be recycled and reused by anyone. Read this please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    There is no “www’ in amy WordPress.com URL.

    klobtolucainternational.wordpress.com doesn’t exist
    The address klobtolucainternational.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved!

    When we register a username account the matching blog is reserved for our future use. It cannot be obtained by anyone other than the person who has registered the matching username. I have flagged this thread for Staff attention. Please be patient while waiting.
