    I want to delete all the content on my blog but not delete the blog itself entirely. Just want to clear it so I can start over fresh using the same url etc.
    Thanks, Nicola.

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

    Hi there,
    If you don’t have a lot of content and don’t wish to wait for Staff to delete it for you then you can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
    bulk delete images & media http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/deleting-files/#bulk-deletion
    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here’s how to permanently delete Trash >

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#deleting-permanently

    Alternatively, if you do have a lot of content, you can tag this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and once deleted, the data cannot be recovered. If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, please reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove it from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 – 6 months.

    Hi there,

    I’ve gone ahead and started this for you. You should see the site cleared out within about an hour from now.

    Cheers!
