How to export/import media & posts from self-hosted to wordpress.com

  1. The self-hosted site is adagiojournal.com. Please point me to the procedure documentation instructing the steps to move all of posts and media.

    I see lots of people having trouble, but have not found the actual documentation.

    The blog I need help with is adagiojournal.wordpress.com.

  2. Many thanks for instant help. I stumbled because the import prompt says (approx.) "exported media files will be imported automatically". Since I have no way to export the old media I thought I was stuck.

    I have completed export/import from adagiojournal.com to adagiojournal.wordpress.com. The source blog/media shows some 236 files, the new imported blog/media shows some 30 files.

    The links that I have audited all still work because the source blog is still alive.

    Example orphaned media:

    1. http://adagiojournal.com/wp-content/uploads/requirements.pdf
    2. http://adagiojournal.com/wp-content/uploads/accomodation-plan.pdf

    Does this mean that all files in that /uploads/ path have been orphaned? Is there an automated process to recover these to the new blog?

  3. Sorry - I forgot to mention that I never saw the option that was supposed to appear after selecting the XML file for import:

    "Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files."

    Is this just operator error on my part?
