Retrieving deleted blog

  1. I deleted my site recently and I would like retrieve it back now. When deleting the blog, I thought I would still be able to create a blog with the same address. I really like my blog address and would like to retrieve it back for future use. I would really appreciate it if you can help me do so. Thank you very much!

  2. Hey there,
    It's unfortunate that you deleted your blog without realizing that once it's deleted, you can never get it back. There are several warnings throughout the deletion process to prevent this from happening.

    Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over the address of a blog that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner. Please do not submit support requests asking us to do this.

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Perhaps you could choose a blog with a similar name, or pick a custom domain that is available.
