Questions & Answers

What happens when I delete my account?

Before you do anything, please be aware that deletions cannot be undone. Once you delete your blog or account, its contents are gone forever. Your primary blog will be deleted. Your secondary blogs that you are the only member of will be deleted, and you'll be removed from any group blogs you are a member of. Your blog URL will be released, and can be used by anyone who's looking to create a blog. You can create a new account using the same email address you used last time. At this time, you can only delete your account / primary blog from a browser (on your computer or in a mobile browser), rather than in the app.
