    I have registered a second blog,chickenspics, but when liking or replying to comments they come up with my first blogs name, craftybunch.
    any idea how to leave comments with second blogs details?
    thanks

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

    On your dashboard Profile page, change the site listed under Website.

    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    If that doesn’t work then if you change a blog address this can happen. I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    I think you mean they come up with your ‘craftybunch’ username, right?
    Both blogs are registered under one account (craftybunch), which means that ‘craftybunch’ is the identity on both your blogs. Does this relate to your issue?

    Feel free to also follow timethief’s steps to change the ‘Primary blog’.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

    yes that sounds right, I made my own blog, craftybunch, then created my daughters one, chickenspics, through mine, as I wanted to oversee it, but when she replies it comes up as craftybunch. (except once! but still with my pic) I have made hers the primary but it still replies under craftybunch.
    not a clue on my end!:)

    I see. You might want to create a separate account for the other blog. You can create a new account at http://wordpress.com/signup , make sure you are logged out first. After that you can login again and reply to me so I can move the chickenspics blog to the new account.
