    I once had a wordpress blog, within the past year or so, but for some reason I can’t find it using any of my email/password combos. How can I find it if I can’t remember my username or email used to open it?

    If you don’t have access to your account or forgot the password, you can request a new password over here.

    Please follow the instructions carefully. You’ll receive two separate emails during the reset process, so make sure you read them both. If you don’t receive the emails right away, check your spam folders as well. The confirmation emails can get caught in them sometimes :)

    When I do that it says that my blog doesn’t exist. But when I type in my blog it says that is has been deleted.

    I meant when I type in my blog address it says it has been deleted.

    I’m sorry, but deleted blogs cannot be restored or reused. Deleting a blog is permanent and the name cannot be used again. There are several warnings about this on the Tools -> Delete Site page and in the help pages, and you are required to confirm the deletion by email.

    You can start a new blog by logging in to WordPress.com and then going to http://en.wordpress.com/signup/

    With any blog, you can also use your custom domain with Domain Mapping upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/
