I had help from tweaky.com in setting up a new self-hosted lifeyum.com on wordpress.org (shifting from wordpress.org). Two big blips, though:
1. Lifeyum.wordpress.com still exists, has followers, and I tried to redirect to the new wordpress.org site, but got a message that the domain mapping already existed. If there is a way for it to remain private (for me to refer to as needed), that would be great. If not, it's most important that I just have one site: the wordpress.org site -- lifeyum.com
2. I have 107 email subscribers on lifeyum (wordpress.com), and although I installed the jetpack plugin, they are not transferred. I also don't see a way to post for assistance in transferring.
Any help or guidance would be so appreciated!
