The unique identifier at WordPress.com is the email address one uses to register a username account with. One can register as many WordPress.com blogs as they wish — there is no limit. If you want another blog registered under the same username your are currently logged into at WordPress.com then point your browser to the WordPress.com sign-up link to register your new blog.
Sometimes WordPress.com members are disappointed to find that when they attempt to register a new blog the URL is already in use. They visit the subdomain and discover that the blog is unused and their hopes of acquiring it soar. They presume that they can simply contact WordPress.com Support Staff and have them remove the unused blog from it’s owner and reassign the blog to them, or they post to the WordPress.com support forum where they are informed this is not possible.
There is no requirement that one has to use a WordPress.com blog they have registered under their WordPress.com username. How frequently a blogger chooses to post to their blog, or if they choose not to post at all, is not of concern to Staff.
The only alternative one has if they find they are faced with the fact a WordPress.com subdomain blog URL they desire has been registered by another blogger and the blog is unused, and one is determined to try and get it, is to contact the blogger who registered that blog. If the comments are open on the blog or if there is contact information one can contect the blogger in question and ask them to transfer the blog to another username account.
- You can register another WordPress.com subdomain URL that’s very close to the one you originally desired and use it.
- You can register another WordPress.com subdomain URL and purchase a domain name and domain mapping. If you do purchase your own domain and domain mapping then it won’t matter what the root blog WordPress.com subdomain URL is.
