Changing your blog link?

Somehow, I managed to create my first blog post Taking the Plunge… with a strange URL for this blog entry which was somehow appearing as:

https://betweenthelines2004.wordpress.com/2016/08/07/first-post/

Note the URL ends with “first-post.” Do what? How can that be? I’m not sure how that got there, but I needed to change this to reflect my actual blog title.

https://betweenthelines2004.wordpress.com/2016/08/07/taking-the-plunge/

The easy way to change this is to click the [Edit] button located just below the blog title.

Permalink Edit 01

Then, clear out the text box, then click the [OK] button:

Permalink Blank Textbox

WordPress will then use the current title for the blog link:

Permalink Updated

Hopefully, this simple step-by-step is helpful to someone else.
