    After researching and getting opinions from professionals I have decided that I want to use two different websites. One for my art portfolio and the other for blogging. My domain name mikkihwangdesign is what I want to use for my art portfolio (for freelance graphic design/illustrator) and I was suggested to use Squarespace for the gallery. As for wordpress, I want to use a domain name that is a lot more casual. But I do not know how to change it and I was worried if I just shut down this website blogging site, the domain, ‘mikkihwangdesign’ cannot be used again.

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

    re: changing a .wordpress.com address
    We cannot edit any blog URLs. If you want to change the .wordpress.com blog address ie. the URL starting with http:// then you must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog to do that and the URL you desire must be available. If so, then you can change the URL by using the guide http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/ Then all the content will be the same only the URLs will change and nothing else.

    Be sure to locate the correct page and proceed with caution http://en.support.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/dashboard-e1371648470893.png

    Changing a URL is meant to be a permanent and irreversible act. No changed or deleted blog URLs are recycled here, regardless of who registered and deleted them and the only exceptions are made are for URLs that were deleted 2 or more years ago
