Simply start a new blog?

Hi,
So far I have only several blog entries on my South America page from last year. Finally, I wanted to start another one and obviously this should be done by clicking 'start new blog', or are things more difficult again than they should be? Anyway, when adding a title and a subtitle (no problems here) I added the domain name, obviously utrecht. Than it says: the domain name exists already....of course it does! It's mine
Also obviously, I am not going to create a new entry under the South America one, because it was not related to that part of the world.
Probably you will come with a good explanation what I should do, as many people are more handy with this than I am. So thanks for that!
But please: is there no other more simple way of starting a new one? I'd like to have my own page and not another domain name again (obviously!);)
Cheers and thanks again. Michael

A blog is a continuing series of post found at a single domain; they don't generally end - the only thing that happens is that their authors change focus. (The domain really is a unique identifier for the blog; that's how it's recognized by its readers (including automated feed readers) and so that domain has to remain fixed and unique.)
If you want your previous blog to stand by itself as a finished whole, then your new blog will need a new domain. But I would recommend changing the title of your current blog to "My travels" or something general like that, and just continuing writing in it. You already have categorized your entries, so those remain available to clearly delineate which entries belong to which trip.

Thanks Sander!
Would it be a good idea to add the possibility for members to create new titles and keeping their same domain name?
That way you can create a new title (and maybe subtitles) every trip you make and add entries under this title.
Just a thought. ;)
Will change the title though for know.
Cheers! Michael

Well, currently, you can have different titles and subtitles for every blog entry. :)

LOL, yes, that's true, I just ment one step before that. But I figured it out know, I am fine with it. Thanks
