    I’m confused. I think I messed up in creating my new site. My new site is completely separate and I can’t see it in my current account. I also tried posting this in my running topic, but it would not do it because it said something about not being in the right account or something.
    How do I copy and paste some stuff from my old site to me new one? Was I just supposed to create my domain in my current old dashboard account thingy?

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

    What is the url of the new site ?

    It sounds like you created your new site under another user account.
    You can transfer the new site to the correct user following the steps in this support page:

    Hi, the url is musicmagick.wordpress.com.

    Yes, somehow I created the site under a new account or something.
    I want to create a new site and have it separate because I want to retire my current site “itsaboutthemusicblog.wordpress.com in a few months. I want the new site to have a different domain name because the content will be different and wold not make sense to keep the old domain name for the new site.

    I’m trying to build the new site behind the scenes and then launch when ready.
    I need to take some content from my “old” site and put it in the new one.
    I want to keep my current site up and running while I do all that and have both up and running for a couple of months or so to give time for folks to follow me from the old site to the new.

    I’m thinking one can not have two primary sites under the same account either.

    I’m very confused. Should I have created the new site under a different account? Should I have instead created the new domain name under my old account?

    If I did create the new site correctly, how do I fix the email? I accidentally put in a wrong non-existent email address when creating it and now it will not let me change it unless I verify the non-existent email.
    I can’t even get email follow up on this issue because of it. So I have to keep checking hoping to find this thread.

    This is really messed up. Should I delete me new site and start over? (I have not content in it yet). If I do that though I’m afraid I will not be able to use the domain name I chose because I used it already now.

    hi,

    DO NOT DELETE the new site.

    Deleting a site permanently removes it and you’ll never be able to re-use its WordPress.com address.

    Here is what I advise:
    1. Recover your account for the new site:
    Here is our support page for more information on recovering your account:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/account-recovery/

    2. After recovery, decide whether you want to maintain one or two user accounts.
    If you choose to keep one user account, transfer domain to the one you choose.

    I’m thinking one can not have two primary sites under the same account either.

    You can only have one primary site.
    However, you can have more than one site per user account.
    I would recommend keeping your multiple sites under one account for ease of maintenance.

    Here is the meaning and implication of primary site:
