'My Blogs' page - I need help with my transferred domain name!

    Help needed with my wordpress.com site - recently transferred domain from wordpress.org...
    I recently signed up for a self-hosted blog on wordpress.org. I was having a lot of trouble with the theme that I purchased and decided to switch everything over to wordpress.com and blog from there. I cancelled my self-hosted site and moved the domain name to the wordpress.com user name that I had already linked to the wordpress.org site. I followed all the instructions to map my new domain and everything seems to be working ok - Most of the time, when I enter either one of the domains (the purchased or the free one) they both direct to http://www.momentsmatter.org.

    I have had multiple times when the blog simply goes to my hosting platform at BlueHost instead of to my blog page. Why is this happening?

    I am wondering if there is something wrong with my 'My Blogs' page under the 'Dashboard' tab? Currently, my blog name and address are listed as [email redacted] (the free blog that I set up). This is not selected as my Primary address. Under the Linked Blogs section - my http://www.momentsmatter.org site is listed as Hidden. I have tried to make this visible and it only seems to change what shows up on my dashboard - not really anything else.

    Can I permanently get rid of the [email redacted] without losing the money that I spent to map my domain to this account? How to I make http://www.momentsmatter.org the only address on this account?

    The blog I need help with is www.momentsmatter.org.

  2. The blog you specified at http://www.momentsmatter.org does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    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.

  3. http://momentsmatter.org/ appears to be working properly.

    It can take domain changes up to 72 hours (though usually much less) to propagate to your ISP. Unfortunately, we have no control over this as it all depends on how often your ISP refreshes their DNS cache.

    As for the two blogs, they're actually one and the same. Think of momentsmatter.org as a fancy coat for momentsmatter1.wordpress.com.

    Thanks! If I can keep my 'fancy coat' on - I should be good to go!
