Do you have more than one blog name registered with your WordPress account? Do you now want a separate account for each of your blogs? Here is how.
Let’s say your current WordPress account situation is as follows:
(1 account, 2 blogs)
username: roundpicture – blog names: roundpicture, roundtravel
For whatever reason, now you want the following:
(2 accounts, 2 blogs)
username: roundpicture – blog name: roundpicture
username: roundtravel – blog name: roundtravel
Now, if you try to sign up for a new account using roundtravel, you will get an error message: “Sorry, that username already exists!” It is because the name is already taken by an existing blog, despite the fact the blog actually belongs to you.
There is only 1 solution: Contact WordPress Support
1. Log in to roundpicture account – this proves to WordPress Support that you are the owner of roundpicture account.
2. While logged in, navigate to ‘Contact Support’ page.
3. Ask them to create a new account with username roundtravel for you, and to transfer roundtravel blog from roundpicture account to roundtravel account.
(You will need to provide them with an email address in order for them to create the new roundtravel account.)
If you think you might want to have separate accounts for each of your blogs in the future, you might as well register them under their own account usernames from the very beginning and save yourself the hassle above.
It is easy enough to have 2 (or more) independent accounts controlled by just 1 username, by adding the username to be an administrator of the blog(s) you want to control. (How to add a username to be an administrator of a blog)
