Anonymous: "i swear i don't want to be mean or anything, but how did you manage do delete your blog? were you drunk or high or you justn clicked the wrong buttons? xoxo i hope you get a ton of followers real quick!!!"
uh, no, i wasn’t drunk or high.
i was trying to delete a sub-blog to free up the name for someone else. i went to the sub-blog’s settings page:
at the bottom of each sub-blog’s settings page, there is a delete button.
now, you’d assume that the sub-blog’s delete button would, uh, well, delete the fucking sub-blog (and only the sub-blog).
you’d be wrong (it deleted my entire account).
