    A former marketing director at my work created this blog June 2009. I do not know the username, password or email address associated with the blog. As such, there is a hickup in deleting it.

    Here is the URL:

    Please help me delete it.

    Please note the URL provided is the blog we need deleted. The blog I’m using to post I still use and is NOT the one I need deleted.



    In order to help you get access to your blog Staff need one of the following things in order to correctly identify you as the blog owner:

    1. an email from the email address associated with the account or revealing what that associated email address was
    2. the API key for your account. This was included in your welcome email with a note to keep it safe. Please do not post the API key here.
    3. if you have purchased any upgrades for the blog a transaction number

    Hopefully, you will be able to provide one of those to Staff when they enter this thread, which I have flagged for their attaention.



    I’m sorry I din’t read more carefully. The owner of the blog is the person who registered the username account that registered the blog. That person is the only person that can transfer the blog to another username account or delete it. You can’t do either because you aren’t the blog’s owner.
