How to change your Wordpress Blog email and password for increased security

As most of you may be aware, I am an avid blogger, running three (3) separate blogs as follows:

2.      Geezam blog

I recently had a problem with my email account be closed by Google due to an excessive amount of email marketing to my 800 plus fans. Wordpress blogs are notoriously hard to get traffic; using mass emailing via a list created from the local newspaper and Google Plus has been the best way to drive traffic to my MICO Wars: The Teacher Force Awakens blog!

This prompted me to write about free and paid Mass Mailing Applications to send email to my followers as explained in my blog article entitled “How to use Mass Mailing Applications to send Bulk Email to your Followers Online”.

However, I soon realized that I had a lot of other service that I'd signed up to using my Gmail account that needed to be changed to a different account. My blog My Thoughts on Technology and Jamaica was ok, as it uses a different email. 

But my other blog MICO Wars: The Teacher Force Awakens, a Wordpress Blog needed to be changed to a different email address as well as have the password changed as detailed in my MICO Wars blog article entitled “How to change your Gmail and Yahoo Password as Jamaican Government secures Websites”.
                                                                                                          
This is important especially if I forget my password and I need to change it or to keep track of notifications as well as comments made by readers! On that note, I have a whole lot of other accounts that I need to switch away from my Gmail account!

So without further ado, here's how to change the email and password for a Wordpress Blog!!

How to change Wordpress Blog email and Password – Very Straightforward and simple

Hint: write the new password in a Notepad document temporarily to ensure that you don’t get it mixed up during this verification step. Make sure it’s mixture of letters and numbers with some of them in Caps.
