I started creating a blog, decided I wanted a different name so I deleted it. I also wanted to change my username and as I changed that it asked me if I wanted to change my current blog’s name. I said yes and typed in the new name “LiveBigler”. It is not showing up on my dashboard now and when I go to “create a new blog” it says that the site “LiveBigler” is already in use…. yet I don’t see it.
livebigler.wordpress.com is no longer available.
The authors have deleted this blog.
Please note this: Usernames can be turned into blog addresses, but blog addresses cannot be turned into usernames.
7. The final option presented on this screen allows you to discard your current address. This option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again. If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog, you can keep the address and purchase the Site Redirect upgrade. from http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/
Deleted blog URLs here are not recycled. That’s why 3 warnings are given and why a vertfication link in an email that must be clicked is sent in order to accomplish deletion.
You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/
Or you can register a domain vis a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
