I left that workplace and now they’re trying to take ownership of the site. It is MY blog registered in MY details. Can they do that? I would like to keep it to show other companies what I have done… The blog I need help with is dialarch.wordpress.com.

I keep getting password resets sent through to my personal e-mail… It concerns me that if somehow I lose it, I’ll never get it back! Thanks so much for your help October 5, 2012 at 10:19 am #1032089 thegiddygoatMember It would be a good idea to change your email address associated with your account, and your username too. That would prevent ‘them’ from trying to gain access.

It could be someone trying to take over your blog or email or it could just be someone that has lost access to their own blog but has a problem spelling their user name or email account.
