    Hi, I’ve tried and tried searching for the answer to this question, but I’m getting very frustrated. I have four wordpress blogs, but only one that I am currently updating. When I comment on other wordpress blogs, I would like the link attached my name to go to my primary blog (which I have designated as primary in as many places as I can find!). Instead, it stubbornly returns to the first wordpress blog I created. I’ve tried to change it on my Gravatar and looked at their site, but I can’t get any help there either. Help? Please?

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

    Just to make me seem even more crazy, the name this post appeared to identify with is my login, but not the name I use to comment and post on my blogs. And this one does link to my primary blog. But trust me–if I comment on your blog, it will show my name as being “Nina Veron,” and it will link to the wrong blog!

    Should your name not link to http://cfbookchick.wordpress.com/ ?

    After a lot of searching, I found the answer, posted originally by Timethief:

    You can change the blog linked to your username here > Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to ‘Account Details’. In the spot where it says ‘website’ fill in the URL of your selected blog and save the changes. Do note that switching back and forth will requires you changing the URL each time you choose to change your username link.

    @raincoaster – the blog I was formerly linking to was my 365 day photo blog which has, thankfully, ended so I didn’t want to link to it any longer! :)

    I have been having the same problem. I did what you suggested and it still doesn’t work…?

    What’s posted does work so if you aren’t succeeding then we need to have details such as how many username accounts you have, which blogs you registered under which username accounts, and what their URLs are, in order to figure out why it’s not working for you.

    @cfbookchick and @timethief, thank you so much for finding that! I’m still having some problems but I think it might be because of username issues. . . still working on it! But I hadn’t found that particular setting before.

    And, proving my point, this posted as ninastargirl and not ninaveron. .. argh!
