Migration and integration question

  1. Hello,
    I have a blog over on Blogger which I would like to migrate to WordPress, and would also like to integrate it into my website at the same time (making the blog the homepage of my site). Not sure why I have had them separate all this time when I already owned the domain. My question is, should I migrate to WP first, and then map the blog onto the domain, or the other way around? And when I map the blog onto the domain, does the existing home page (index file) just disappear?
    Thanks for any help.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. Thanks 'bot, but my existing WP blog isn't the one I'm asking about. The one I'm asking about will be a new WP blog.
    It's currently located at http://www.vintagedollcollector.blogspot.com
    and the website is http://www.vintagedollcollector.com

  4. Your site is not hosted on WordPress.COM and you are posting to the wrong support forum. This forum is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM.

    Your support questions must be posted to the correct support site for your software and that is here http://wordpress.ORG/support/ You can register a username account at wordpress.ORG on the top right hand corner of that page.

  5. Thanks, I guess I'm not being clear enough with my question, which is: should I switch to wordpress.COM first and then once that hurdle is accomplished, change over to wordpress.ORG when I integrate the blog into the website? That seems the best option to me because I am afraid of doing both moves at the same time. I'm just looking for opinions from people who might have done this before. So, no, my site isn't hosted on wordpress.com YET, but it might be later on today!
    Thanks.

  6. I don't see any advantages for you. It's just as easy to do it to a fully set up WordPress.org install as it is to import to WordPress.com.
