How do I remove my account
Hi there, I deleted my blog on WordPress, but my account is still open. I want to close my account entirely. In fact, I’d like to open another one but under a different name and for a different purpose. I couldn’t figure out how to do this though.
What do you suggest I do?
You deleted the blog without removing the domain mapping http://www.holylandreport.org/ so I’ll I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.
I want to close my account entirely.
After Staff help with sorting this out you can deactivate your account. Although username accounts are not deleted, so you cannot be impersonated and have your reputation affected by anyone registering the same username in the future, there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind. http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/
Hi, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I’m even more confused now though. I tried to change expressingtheorient to holylandreport and it seems I’ve done that as you mentioned the latter, but whenever I try to visit holylandreport.org it says “server not found”. I’d like to change the name to holylandreport.org with a username of Jacqueline Yvette and a different email address. But if I deactivate this account, then I won’t be able to create another one with the name jacqueline yvette, right? If that’s the case, how do I keep my account, but change the domain name to http://www.holylandreport.org? Sorry for all the questions!!

Oops! Sorry I had already done that and I sound like a parrot. Wait patiently for Staff to respond please.
It looks like you were able to successfully change your username to holylandreport. I also see a blog under your account holylandreport.wordpress.com. You can see your email address on this page when logged in:
Is all of that information looking correct? @timethief is correct in that accounts cannot be deleted. Blogs, on the other hand, can be deleted. So, in this case, it looks like you deleted your previous blog expressingtheorient.wordpress.com, created a new blog with your desired blog name, and changed your username (which was the best way to go!).
Now, in order to have the domain holylandreport.org display instead of your default WordPress.com address, you will just need to register it as explained here:
Let me know if everything is setup how you would like it to be and if you have any trouble registering the domain!
