At present, Blurty does not allow username changes. You cannot change your username and keep your journal entries at the same time. You will need to create a new account on Blurty in order to use a journal with a different username. If the username you would like to use is unavailable, try adding variants such as numbers and letters or underscores to the username.
Usernames are also not recyclable. If a user has deleted their journal, it is not possible for you to create a new account using that username. For more information, please visit: http://www.blurty.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=7
In order to move your old journal entries, you would need to copy and paste them one by one into the new journal. You may wish to use the backdate option while doing this so as not to flood your friend's friends pages. Information on using the backdate option can be found here: http://www.blurty.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=18 - note that there is no way to transfer comments on the entries.
In addition, switching to a new account will cause you to lose whatever account type you may have. Your new account will be a Free User account regardless of whether you previously had an Early Adopter or Permanent account.
