Prepare for the deletion first. Consider the issues.
- The implications of the deletion.
- An interaction with custom domains.
- The latency limitations of deleting a blog.
The deletion process itself is not complicated. Start from a link at the top of the Settings - Basic screen.
There's the link - "Delete blog" - right at the top of the screen. Easy to find, and to click on.
Having clicked in it, we get a good stern warning.
we can't restore your blog posts once you choose to delete your blog.Plain enough?
And a link to let you export the blog contents, before deleting the blog. I'd export first, any time. And now, due to popular demand, you can restore a deleted blog.
Note that, for the latter ability to exist, a deleted blog will be with you forever - including being on your dashboard ("Show all" at the bottom). If you truly want to get rid of a blog (or the URL, anyway), you have 2 just choices:
- Transfer control of the blog to someone else, carefully.
- Make the blog into a stub, then re publish the stub under another URL.
