    I recently moved my blog to a self-hosted site using wordpress.org and would like to migrate my follwerss from my wordpress.com blog. I have the jetpack installed and the sites connected. The url's are:

    ridngfarsportpsych.wordpress.com

    ridingfar.com

    I understand that I need someone from support to migrate my followers. Is that correct?

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

  2. Great, congrats on your new install! I've tagged this for Staff and someone will follow up to let you know when the final transfer has been done.

    Thanks.

  4. I see two Jetpack sites, ridingfar.com/wordpress/ and another at ridingfar.com. To confirm, you want to use the top level ridingfar.com, correct?

    Yes. Top level ridingfar.com

  6. Your WordPress.com subscribers and email followers have been transferred as requested.

    Please note that any WordPress.com followers who opted to receive email updates will need to re-subscribe again on your new site through the Jetpack signup box, otherwise they'll only see new posts in their Reader. Non-WordPress.com email subscribers will continue to get email updates.

    You might think about setting up a Site Redirect for your WordPress.com site at ridngfarsportpsych.wordpress.com to send your site visitors to your new domain. Otherwise, people will still be able to subscribe on your old site.

  7. Hello, can I please ask you to help me with moving my followers too. I recently moved my blog http://www.noregretsjustadventures.wordpress.com to self hosted wordpress site http://www.nrja.co

    I have already installed Jetpack. Is it possible to move both email and wordpress.com subscribers to my new website?

    Thanks

  8. cayferg,

    Your WordPress.com subscribers and email followers have been transferred as requested.

    Same information that I posted previously also pertains to you, including a suggestion to get site redirect for noregretsjustadventures.wordpress.com :

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/

  9. Thank you Jackiedana! I will look into the site redirect!

  10. You're welcome!
