    Hi,

    kind regards,
    Tom

  2. You could start by reading this http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/can-i-migrate-my-blog-from-here-to-another-blog-somewhere-else/

    You have not specified where you intend to move your blog to. If you have hired a web host and that host downloads a free blog template from http://wordpress.org then the contents of your wordpress.com blog can be easily imported into it. If that is the case this may be helpful wordpress blog import and export
    In the old blog click Manage -> Export -> and save the file
    In the new blog click Manage -> Import -> and upload the file
    This does not move any pictures or other uploads though - you have to do that manually.

    I intend to move my blog to TopClassHosts, so can I still move it? Thanksfor replying by the way!

  4. If you read the first link TT gave you, you'll see you can still move it, but it might not be as smooth.

    Ok thanks! Just asking but what do you mean by 'not be as smooth'. What problems might I face? Just would like to know before I go and pay for my hosting. Thanks a lot!

    Anyone help me a little more? I would truley appreciate it! Thanks!

  7. It really is simple to move the content. Got the impression from your blog at http://rockstargamesuncut.wordpress.com/ that you don't have many images. Once you leave wordpress.com you will not be supported here, but there is lots of support at http://wordpress.org/support/ and that is also the place that you download wordpress from. The link that timethief gave you shows you how to export you content. It again is at this FAQ and there is many other articles on moving to another host with these articles.

    Hope that helps.

    The link I provided above for importing from a wordpress.com blog into a wordpress template downloaded from http://wordpress.org is "broken" so here it is again importing and exporting wordpress blogs
