What to do with transferred WordPress.com blog?

  1. I just transferred my old WordPress.com blog to a new on WordPress.org.

    What should I do with my old blog because I do not want to delete it,
    should I change the visibility of my WordPress.com blog in private or
    something else or nothing to do?

    Best regards.

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

  2. To change blog visibility to public from private go to > Settings > Reading. See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    I know the procedure.

  4. If you set it to private it disappears from the search engines faster than if you delete it. That is what I always recommend.

  6. Another good reason to mark it private is that it is not unknown for people to want to return to WordPress.com after switching to .org!
