Is there any way to free up a deleted domain?

    I deleted one of my blog very recently to free up it’s domain so I could use it for my other blog. I must have clicked the wrong button when it asks how you want to delete it, because apparently deleting the blog didn’t free up it’s domain. I really just want that domain, which is just my name. However I don’t know if there’s anything to do.

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

    You cannot recover or register any deleted blog URL. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent and irreversible. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and it must be clicked to delete a blog. If clicking that link does not work then copy and paste it into your upper browser window and click. Once the verification link for deletion is clicked the blog URL is forever gone, gone, gone.

    You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping.
