    My main blog is the one listed here (themetalfiles.com) but I recently created a second blog to talk publicly about some private issues and didn’t realize until today that it shows my main blog name/link as the author. Is there a way to hide this?

    Thanks for your assistance. I searched the forums but couldn’t find what I was looking for.

    The blog I need help with is themetalfiles.com.

    Not sure if there is a better way, but you could try creating a second user name/login, giving that name posting access to the blog (via the user tab on the dashboard) and posting only under that name.

    That’s easy.

    Get a gmail that is anonymous/pseudonymous. Like SkippyTheKlingon at Gmail. Then log out of WP and register a new account (not a blog) via that email. Then log out again, log back in as acacia70 and Invite Skippy to be an admin of your blog. Then, once you’ve accepted from the Skippy account, contact staff (not on a weekend) and ask them to delete your original account.

    It means you have to log out and log in again as Skippy before posting in that blog, but it will protect you. And you can go back and edit the author of each post, too, so you can change your old posts to be by Skippy too.
