old blog taking up a URL
Blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over a blog name that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner.
You can register another blog on a .wordpress.com subdomain with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/
Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
You’re welcome. :)
lots of questions have been asked and answered many times before, but it is not always easy to find them.
timethief gave you some viable alternatives to claiming the url you want. I completely forgot about the domain mapping alternative. I’m such a cheapskate that I don’t think about a paid alternative. Even my family bothers me about that.
LOL! Best wishes on your blogging.
I pay for a No-Ads upgrade but there’s no way I’ll purchase another upgrade of any kind. Being thrifty is a virtue; living beyond one’s means is pandering to vice.
Oops! I forgot that I also have domain mapping upgrades. I consider a domain to be essential when one is a serious blogger who is determinied to blog over the long term.
