    http://www.davidlatta.org is my oldest blog. I recently registered a new domain name – http://www.writeonbali.com – that I want to make a stand-alone blog. I went through the process of WP domain mapping yesterday but must have slipped up and now when I type in http://www.writeonbali.com it redirects to http://www.davidlatta.org. Thanks so much for any help you can give.

    The blog I need help with is davidlatta.org.

    I can help you with that. What blog would you like http://www.writeonbali.com to point to?

    I’d be starting a new blog as Write On Bali at http://www.writeonbali.com. Many thanks – David

    You need to have an underlying whatever.wordpress.com URL to connect that URL to first. If you want two separate blogs, you need to create a new blog like writeonbali.wordpress.com first, then the staffer can move the domain to that blog.

    It is because you bought that custom domain from the dashboard of the other blog, that you are having this trouble.

    Don’t forget to post the URL here so rootjosh knows what blog to move the upgrade to.
