    Hi, I need help please.
    Please will you look at the blog aftertherain.wordpress.com
    which I was mine and under my name, and which I deleted a little while back but is showing up as private and owned by someone else; I cannot access it but 91 of my pictures have just come into my new blog from there; thanks :)

    The blog is private – not deleted and deleted blog URLs are not recycled
    http://aftertherain.wordpress.com

    My guess is you own this blog perhaps under a different username account and have to recover it.

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog.

    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
    and if required click the “Need More Help” link and complete the form for account recovery.

    Hi, timethief thanks for answering; I registered and used this blog as dovesgold; all my blogs are as dovesgold. Please look at the new blog here –
    http://throughrainto.wordpress.com/

    which I’ve just set up and imported a whole copy file of my old aftertherain.wordpress.com blog. As you will see, every post came up as dovesgold as the author. I have never had this blog under a different username; and I did request a delete on it.
    Please will you look into this for me, thanks :)

    Lol I’ve found the mistake was mine :) ‘After the rain’ was the blog name not it’s address and the picture import came in from its adress of tofreeadove which is still active but has a name change, how’s that for confusing myself ; sorry I misread the Safari import document name, believing it to be showing the site address when it is showing the blog name :)
