    I would like to know how I can separate two blogs I have created under one log in. The later, I don't want to be affiliated with the first one because I want to use a pseudo name to discuss touchy subjects.

    The blog I need help with is rawsilkandsaffron.com.

  2. Hi There,

    Keegan here, WordPress.com community member, I would be happy to help.

    You can transfer a blog to a new account. First setup your new account.

    You can create a new account here - https://wordpress.com/pricing

    Then, you can follow these steps to complete your transfer.

    If your latter blog has a custom domain, be sure to transfer that first. You can transfer a domain name by following these steps - https://en.support.wordpress.com/move-domain/transfer-a-domain-to-another-wordpress-com-account/

    Please let me know if this answers your question, or if you need further assistance :)

  3. Just to add to what @keegan posted, WordPress.com sites are independent. What you do on one or to one has no impact on any other site.

    Thank you both for the information. What I was meaning to clarify is that -
    would anyone be able to trace all my blogs back to me or cross reference them? Because all the personal stuff I want to write about in my 2nd blog I don't want anyone to know that I am the same blogger from the first blog - which is all about the fun side of life. So based on Moodyblerd no one can figure out I am the same blogger for both?

  5. Typically, the only information shared publicly on your site is the information that you publish. Privacy is a broad issue so I would take the time to view the privacy policy down below to make sure you have all your bases covered.

    Automattic(the company behind WordPress.com) publishes their privacy policy here - https://automattic.com/privacy/

    Your privacy settings are located here - https://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

  6. Also, when you purchase your domain, you will want to purchase the private registration upgrade. The upgrade costs $8 per year and hides the information on your "Whois" record. Your Whois record is a public record of who owns a particular domain.

    You can read more about this upgrade on this blog post - https://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/07/30/private-domain-registrations/

    You can check to see if your current domain is protected, and update the privacy settings on your domain management page - https://wordpress.com/domains/manage/

    Please let me know if this answers your question, or if you need further assistance :)

  7. Sure, no one will discover you are the same blogger for both sites if you have a private domain registration and a different Gravatars

    All WordPress.com plans include a free domain credit with optional private or public domain registration. I can see your site http://rawsilkandsaffron.com/ has a private registration. So, your contact information is not public on whois.com

    Once you create the second blog, follow these steps to add a domain and choose if you’d like your contact information to be public or private: https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/register-domain/

    You can read more about public and private domain registration here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/register-domain/#public-versus-private
