    Blog url: http://gcross1987.wordpress.com/

    What are you trying to change it to, and how are you doing it?

    I went via ‘My Blogs’, through dashboard and then clicked on change this address.

    I filled out the 2 boxes, being the new address and the confirmation. They match exactly but when I hit save, it tells me they don’t match.

    And I’m trying to change it to thecatsmeeow.wordpress.com because it defaulted to my email address and I don’t want that.

    Don’t waste your time with a name change – the blog linked to your name is empty – just register a new blog name that you want and start blogging – set the old blog to Private and use it for testing and learning without messing up your “Real” blog

    But that is the blog name I really want, otherwise it wouldn’t be an issue.

    Then register it as a NEW blog instead of trying to change your existing blog to it.

    The address thecatsmeeow.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved!

    Is reserved for you (your user name) – you should be able to just register it while logged in

    You can’t register it as a new blog, once the name has been used, it cannot be used again on a new account.

    I’ve tried so many times to change it and it keeps telling me it doesn’t match but it clearly does. So frustrating!

    Well, after many MANY attempts, I finally changed it.

    Problem solved!
