    In 2008, I started a blog called Church of Cat, and for some reason, the URL I used was barbaraherman.wordpress.com

    I want to keep that wordpress, because I bought the domain name on GoDaddy and I want to map it onto the wordpress site, but I cannot get to an admin panel to change any of the Church of Cat content.

    When I sign in and ask to look at my blogs, it says I don’t have any. I’m confused. help! Thanks.

    This is the login link http://barbaraherman.wordpress.com/wp-admin
    You must be logged in under exact same username account that registered the blog and who is the Admin of the blog to access it.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
    If required click the “Need More Help” link and complete the form for account recovery.

    Thanks for you help, Timethief. Question: I followed the link you sent to see what blogs are registered under the user name, including the hidden ones, and it says 0, i.e. none, across the board.

    The blog barbaraherman.wordpress.com is registered under a different account (barbaraherman) . Please make sure to log into that account in order to manage the blog.

    If you don’t have access to your account or forgot the password, you can request a new password over here.

    Please follow the instructions carefully. You’ll receive two separate emails during the reset process, so make sure you read them both. If you don’t receive the emails right away, check your spam folders as well. The confirmation emails can get caught in them sometimes :)
