How To Change My Site Display Name


Sites are the main blogs that you had created which can be sub-categorized under different blog names.

For example:

My Site: Asian Cuisines

Blogs under Asian Cuisines: Fried Rice Recipe, Chicken Chop Recipe, Chow Mien Recipe


However, I was really displeased with MySite names which I had created since I am a newbie at Blogjob.

I am sure lots of newbie writers had the same problem with editing or changing the Site name which we had created.

We are too anxious to create a new site that we had not thought carefully an ideal Site Title for our articles.

After I had posted this question at the Forum, I found the answers to my question through WordPress forum instead.

Although Blogjob may not have all the questions and answers that we are seeking for, but I am glad that WordPress provided a very helpful Forum site that answered most WordPress writers problem online.

It is quite easy than I thought.

There are 2 methods to change My Site names, the 1st method was tested out by me while the second method was recommended by gina145


Here are the steps:


Method  # 1:

chg site4

Select the number of post

chg site5

Type in the new Site Name and Tag Line



  1. Go to MYSITE
  2. Select the site that you want to change ( example: How to Clean Washing machine)
  3. Go to Dashboard
  4. Go to At a glance at the lower bottom of the page
  5. Click to the number of your post(example: 1post)
  6. Go to Settings and then General which is located on your left hand side bar
  7. Go to Site Title
  8. Type in New Site Title  (example: Household chores)
  9. Go to Tagline
  10. Type in Sub Title Name (example: Tips and Tricks )
  11. Click Save Changes




Method #2

chg site2

Select Settings-> Customize


chg site3

Type in new Site Title and Tag Line


Method #2

  1. Go to MySITE
  2. Select the site you want to change
  3. Go to Customize
  4. Go to Site Title and Tagline which is located on your left hand side bar
  5. Under Site Title, type in the new Site Name

Now, go back to My Site and you will noticed that your ugly unwanted Site Title is gone, replaced by the new title which you had changed.
