    I have 2 users for my blog, where one was created when I imported my posts from blogger to WP.

    The other user (who is actually me) has a different identity on the blog, as in his id is shown as 2 (and mine is 1.) How can I change/modify the other user's id to be the same as mine..?

    rohitkumar, you could change all "wrongly" IDed posts to the correct ID (I'm assuming #1) and then delete the extra user. If there aren't many posts that have the "wrong" author, you can change them via the post edit window (may be you need to open advanced options if you don't see the Post Author dropdown).

    If there are many, you could run a SQL query. I'm sure there are threads about that around.
