Deleted blog, now can't re-create one

Hey Folks,
Here’s what happened:

  • I’m just starting out on the Basic (1 blog) plan
  • I wanted to rename my blog form… to something else.
  • But there was nowhere to do that
  • So I deleted the blog to create another
  • But when I deleted it, the entire blog section disappeared from the Accounts area
  • So now I can’t create a new blog… and therefore can’t post

I’m stuck in no-mans land.

I assume my blog will need to be restored and i’ll be advised not to delete it. If that’s the case… may I ask how I can rename it? Many thanks.

The only way to edit the `’ URL is to email

If you want a custom version of your URL specifically, I’d suggest taking a look at custom domains. This will give you greater control of these types of changes, including if you ever switch from MB to a different host, and MB also has good support for custom domains.

Can you try creating the blog again on this page?

This is definitely a problem area when deleting all blogs… I’ll fix this so that even if there are no blogs it shows all the appropriate options. We may also want to have a “recreate the default blog” button to make this easier.

Actually I think if you aren’t subscribed to Premium, it will complain about creating a new blog. I’m fixing that. For now, @simonwoods is right, best to email to and we can recreate everything for you.

Sorry about this! Thanks.

Thanks so much guys. I’ll do that!

Thanks, I’m replying to your email now. I also have a change ready to go later this week that improves this situation so that when trying to post, it gives you an option to recreate a blog that had been deleted.
