One wordpress account with different blogs: how to remain private when posting

    I have a number of blogs within the same wordpress account. On a new blog, I’d like to use an alias rather than my real name. Despite trying to change my gravatar settings both here and on Gravatar.com, when I post from any blog it retains the same gravatar, with my real name and profile picture, even though I’ve tried to set up separate profiles to align with the different emails that I use to administer each blog. When I try to verify a new email for the new blog in the settings page on WordPress, when I click on the link in the verification email it defaults back to the settings page of my primary blog, not the new one.

    Is there a way to have different gravatars/profiles associated with different blogs within the same wordpress.com account?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is thatelephantintheroom.com.

    The e-mail address registered with your WordPress.com account is your unique identifier. To completely disassociate blogs you need to have separate usernames and that requires separate email addresses. The step that comes after that is transferring the blog to the other username account.

    TT’s advice is sound, but even better is abandoning the one blog you want to keep private, starting a new username account, and having that open a new blog.

    Thanks guys, I don’t want to abandon it so I’m going to go for the former option.

    Don’t post things like this either. It makes anyone able to see BOTH your ID’s.
