I am new at learning about domains, so I will try to make this brief. About a year ago, I blogged at http://www.onceuponaprologue.blogspot.com, then I purchased a custom domain through Blogger (and Enom) at http://www.onceuponaprologue.com. Recently, I decided to move to WordPress and created http://www.onceuponaprologue.wordpress.com, and transferred my domain to Enom. Yesterday I purchased domain mapping through WordPress to map my onceuponaprologue.wordpress.com TO onceuponaprologue.com. I followed the WordPress domain mapping instructions, and changed my DNS servers as instructed, but now my onceuponaprologue.com is NOT showing up.
I've tried changing my DNS servers back the registrar's default settings, and my site STILL does not show up. I know that it can take some time for the mapping to go into effect, but I did not expect my blog to disappear entirely in the meantime.
I would appreciate any help. A friend said that since I'm self-hosting, I shouldn't have to change my DNS to WordPress's settings (ie. NS1.wordpress.com, and so on.)
The blog I need help with is onceuponaprologue.com.
