    I already have the url lebenscribe.wordpress.com but when enter it into the required field to create a new blog it says that it is taken and won’t let me make a blog with that name.
    Blog url: http://lebenscribe.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is lebenscribe.wordpress.com.

    You cannot create another blog with the same URL. You have to choose a different name.

    Can I delete the first blog? What happened is I just set up the site and blog name yesterday and decided to change the name before blogging or choosing a template etc. I changed the url but the original blog defaulted under that url and I don’t know how to get rid of it.

    Don’t delete anything as you won’t be able to re-use the URL once it’s gone. You may need staff help for this. Add ‘modlook’ in the tags box on the right, and staff will help you.

    You can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.

    Alternatively, we can empty the whole blog for you, but that will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files. Once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.

    If you are sure you want to proceed, please reply to confirm the name of the blog you want us to empty.

    To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    Another alternative is to purchase a custom domain name to take “wordpress” out of the domain altogether. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/
