    I moved my blog http://gearsoftvalue.wordpress.com to a self hosted one http://www.gearsoftimes.com and I would like to transfer my followers to the new site. I’ve installed the jetpack plugin and linked it to the previous blog. Is it possible? If not I don’t know how to contact them.

    Thanks
    Blog url: http://www.gearsoftimes.com/

    The blog I need help with is www.gearsoftimes.com.

    Hello macmanx,

    Please I would like my blog followers transferred too. I just moved from http://www.naijawriterscoach.wordpress.com to http://www.NaijaWritersCoach.com.

    I’ve already installed and activated Jetpack.
    Thanks.

    Hello Macmanx, i’ve seen that you transferred my followers. Thanks
    But there should have been a problem.

    I had 16 followers and now only one. tha old blog shows no followers (and I think it’s correct cause you transferred them) but the new one shows only one.

    Hi,

    Can I make the same request? I’ve installed/activated jetpack and my wordpress blog is:

    jangalikayamane.wordpress.com

    And the new self-hosted blog is:

    http://www.jangalikayamane.com

    Thanks.

    gearsoftvalue, we can only transfer email followers, as the WordPress.com Reader does not support non-WordPress.com blogs.

    oxygenmat and friffin, I have transferred your followers as requested, but please create your own threads next time.

    Macmanx,
    Thanks a lot. It’s sad the followers on WordPress.com reader can’t be trasferred as those are the ones I need. I’ve catered for the email subscribers through my newly-launched newsletter.

    I regret and am sorry for any inconvenience, but can you help me reverse the action? I don’t need the email subscribers getting updates directly (as my newsletter has covered them).

    Thanks for your help.

    I’m sorry, but the transfer is irreversible.

    In this case, they’ll have to unsubscribe themselves via a link at the bottom of the emails.

    Thanks for the explanation though it’s sad that it’s like this.
    Thanks again for your help
