I have deleted my primary WordPress blog. When I open this deleted blog it shows the message

xyz.wordpress.com is no longer available.

(Consider my login to WordPress.com as xyz).

Now when I want to create a new blog using the same blog address, it is showing this error

Sorry, that site already exists!

How can I recover my address?

Sadly, gone is gone.

Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted.

Even if you were the one to delete it and want it back, you can't. There should be a few warning screens about what will happen if you do delete a blog.
