How I regain access to my username and blog?

    Years ago, I had two usernames and two blogs, and from my problem, it seems like I had them associated with the same email address. I put the all my blogs under one username, my main one, and stopped using the other username (I can’t remember if I deleted it / if there was a way to). Later, I merged the content from one blog into my main blog (themediumandthemayhem.net) and deleted the unecessary blog. Recently, I discovered that I can’t access my main blog, that my username has changed to the username I had stopped using, and that the blog I deleted is now the only blog listed as linked with my wordpress account.

    The blog I need help with is themediumandthemayhem.net.

    Once you change your username you will not be able to change it back and the old name will not be available for anyone else to use. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled here. There are several warnings of the permanency of URL deletion and a verification link is sent in an email to complete the deletion process. You can confirm by reading:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
    If required click the “Need More Help” link and complete the form for account recovery.

    I am still receiving notifications about moderating comments for themediumandthemayhem.net in my email, but when I log into wordpress.com, it says I am not admin for my blog (which makes sense because I stopped associating my blogs with this username).

    Note: Staff need details such as the usernames and the blog URLs that are involved to help sort this out.

    Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify, I never changed my username, there were two separate usernames to begin with.

    I am aware that deleting blogs is permanent. That is also why I am so confused that the deleted one is listed as my only blog.

    Thanks for tagging for staff help.

    lisakori is the user that I can’t access.

    themediumandthemayhem.wordpress.com (domain mapped to themediumandthemayhem.net) is the blog I can’t access

    korilisa is the username I stopped using years ago

    korilisa.wordpress.com is the blog originally started under the korilisa username, moved to the user lisakori, then later deleted permanently.
