    I deleted my old blog and imported all content to this one. Both blogs are/were photo-specific. It displayed properly the first day, but now only some images are displaying. Also my visits are being counted.

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

    Your visits are being counted because the blog is set to private. On private blogs administrator views of the blog are counted. On public blog not.

    Sometimes while transferring blog content from one blog to another media files don’t transfer properly. Unfortunately you’ve already deleted the old blog, so if there are any images that did not make it across they’re gone now.

    Even if they did display fine the first day? If that doesn’t matter, I do have all the image files organized. Is there a way to do a mass upload? I also have the export sheet.

    The way I understand it, initially it displays the images while the images are still hosted in the other blog’s media library. Transferring the images to the other blog’s library is a different process from transferring the regular content and takes a bit longer. We usually advise people to set the blog they no longer want to use to private, rather than deleting it, to prevent issues such as these.

    You can try re-importing the xml file but I don’t think it will help (and might cause more problems), as it doesn’t include the actual images, but only pointed to where they used to be hosted on the old blog.

    You can upload multiple images by going to Media ->Add New in your dashboard, but you’ll have to add them back into the posts one by one.

    This is actually fine, not ideal, but fine. I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t some bigger issue at hand. I had wanted to go through and edit the blog for a while, so now is the opportunity to do that. Thank you.
