    I moved my wordpress.com blog to a wordpress.org blog. I would like help in exporting my followers. I have over 3,000. I would hate to lose all the followers. The blog is http://photolord.com

    Thanks in advance for anyone that can help me with this.

    The blog I need help with is photolord.com.



    The blog you specified at photolord.com 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.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    I knew this message would come up. I still hope someone from support will look at this. This would come up when I was hosted over here at wordpress.com, too. It looks like some bug when it would come up before. I knew that if I listed my site as it is listed in wordpress.org this bot would not understand that I need help with the export of followers from my wordpress blog.



    The wordpress.com blog with the followers is http://mattgeorge.wordpress.com



    I am bumping this up again. I meant to say followers in the title. It was a typo.



    Hi photolord, have a look here

    “Email Subscriptions

    Understandably, you don’t want to lose a single treasured reader. And, you’ll want to set up your subscription service for new subscribers to sign on first thing on your self-hosted blog.

    Happily, the staff at WordPress.com will transfer your current subscribers from your WordPress.com blog to your new self-hosted site if you install the Jetpack Plugin by WordPress.com first. The Jetpack Plugin offers several handy features – mostly free and some paid – that you’re already accustomed to as a WordPress.com blogger. Free features include subscriptions, social media sharing, wordpress.com stats, spelling and grammar, a contact form, among others.

    Installing the Jetpack plugin was one of the first steps I took after exporting my blog to the new site.

    Install the Jetpack by WordPress.com plugin here:

    Dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Search for Jetpack by WordPress.com and follow the installation instructions.

    Once the Jetpack plugin is installed, contact WordPress.com staff and ask them to transfer your subscribers from your WordPress.com site to your new self-hosted blog. I was amazed by how quickly the staff responded. The transfer was complete in a matter of hours.”

    Haven’t tried it myself so can’t promise it works but would suggest you contact the wordpress.com support folks to clarify the if & how of this procedure.



    photolord, sorry, I’m not sure how we missed this thread.

    Do you still need help moving the followers?
