    I just migrated my site – from a hosted site to a self hosted site (on bluehost) now using WP 3.0.

    I have 3 questions:

    a) My blog subscribers (free) did not receive my latest blog entry after I made the switch – so I want to know how to activate those subscribers and make sure that the database of those users has not disappeared.

    b) I assume I will now have to install a plugin to get people to subscribe for free on my blog – any recommendations on which plug-in to use?

    c) How do I make sure that the old ( when I log into the old .com console, I can see still see the e-mail id’s of my blogs subscribers).. and new database of subscribers are then merged into hence receive my new posts?

    The blog I need help with is

    Since there is no connection between wordpress.COM and your self-hosted wordpress.ORG blog, you cannot. What you will have to do is get a new blog subscription widget, or possibly go through feedburner/google and then notify your subscribers that they will have to “re-up” with the new widget/plugin or feedburner/google.
