    I begun my blog with one username, and when changing my blog I updated it with a new username.

    Now, when I comment on someone’s blog, and you click my name, it takes you back to my old blog that is no longer there. So, how do I get it to when you click my name under someones comments, it takes you to my current blog?

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

    When we create username accounts the email address we use to create them becomes our unique identifier and all blog registered under that username appear in the “My Blogs” dropdown. You can change the blog linked to any username provided the blog was registered under that username in the first place. (see instructions below)

    However, if you have two username accounts then you will have to log out and post as the under the second username

    Instructions for linking username to blog
    Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

    Thank you so much for your help!
    It seems it has changed it for recently posted comments, but it didn’t for old comments.

    The change is not retroactive so the old comments will not change.

    Hey there,

    If you created both the blogs with the same wordpress.com account, thats easy to do.

    1. Go to your Global Dashboard.
    2. Go to Profile> Profile Settings
    3. Change the primary blog to the blog you want people to be directed when they click your name on comments.

    Hope that helps. Cheers!

    The change is not retroactive. Though!

    Looks like you had it resolved already when I typed it :)
