    I gave my website the wrong name, how can I change it? ie I wanted kellyaevans.wordpress.com, instead I have kellyaevansdotcom.wordpress.com. Can I change this?

    The blog I need help with is kellyewrites.wordpress.com.

    To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps. Another alternative is to purchase a custom domain name to take “wordpress” out of the domain altogether.

    As I clearly stated in my question, I need to change the actual website URL, NOT the blog name. Don’t care that ‘dot wordpress’ is in the addy, DO care that before the first full stop the name is ‘kellyaevansdotcom’. Literally, that’s the name of my site, need to change!

    I’m afraid you’re still misunderstanding. My blog is called kellyewrites, I do NOT wish to change my blog address. My wordpress website (NOT the blog, the actual website itself) is called kellyevansdotcom.wordpress.com, I want to change THAT to kellyevans.wordpress.com (I’m not just typing the words ‘dot’ and ‘com’ to illustrate, those words are actually part of my website addy. I don’t care that the ‘wordpress’ shows, I want to reword the part before the ‘wordpress’, the ‘kellyevansdotcom’.

    Thank you SO much, I spent ages trying to figure out how to fix what was essentially a very stupid mistake. Again, thank you.
