    I have a blog that is WP format at a self hosted place (GoDaddy). I want to leave them and have my blog at WordPress.com. How do I affect this smoothly? I already have http://www.hiphillbillyfarm.wordpress.com and have no idea how to log into the account to maintain and post.

    It’s all a shambles now and I do not know how to straighted things out and I have not located a number to telephone a WP representative. I really don’t want to go to Blogger.

    The blog I need help with is hiphillbillyfarm.com.

    The blog you specified at hiphillbillyfarm.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 used to self host with this same blog; however, now I no longer want to. Does this make sense?

    Please read this so your are crystal clear on the differences > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I already have http://www.hiphillbillyfarm.wordpress.com and have no idea how to log into the account to maintain and post.

    The correct URL has no “www”.

    The log-in link is http://hiphillbillyfarm.wordpress.com/wp-admin

    You will need to import your content. See > http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

    The WordPress.org codex does not apply here.
    The support documentation is all found at the Support link http://en.support.wordpress.com which on the bottom of your Admin page.
    Also on the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the Learn WordPress.com blogging Tutorial prepared by Staff. http://learn.wordpress.com/

    It won’t let me into my own site and there was no way to get into the “if you reached this screen by accident . . . .help you find your way.” area.
