    Is it possible to obtain/change username from wordpress.com? Simply cannot log in to my admin.

    You need to ask on the WordPress.COM forums — these forums here are for self-hosted WordPress.ORG forums and have control over .COM sites.

    If you can’t post (without logging in), I’m guessing your problem may be addressed in their support docs or FAQs:

    Is your site hosted on WordPress.COM or do you have hosting someplace else (i.e. who do you pay)?

    Bluehost.. I don’t recall going through Bluehost to make changes on the site, but of course, I could be wrong.. thx

    Okay then your site is self-hosted (not wordpress.COM though), so you are in the right place and this should help you:

    or possibly this:

    Well, still no luck.. Would you possibly know why I can’t use my email address for changing my password, the same email address WP sends email too? It won’t recognize it..
    Thanx much for your help!

    If you are hosting your WordPress at Bluehost, call or chat to their support and see if they can help you reset your WordPress password. They don’t do everything for WordPress, but can usually do that.
