How'd it happen that my blog went from WordPress.com to WordPress.org?

    Today I was notifed by WordPress that my blog was no longer with WordPress.com, that it was with WordPress.org. How’d that happen? The only change I made was in June when I purchased my domain through WordPress for $17. If that transferred me to WordPress.org, it wasn’t clear in the wording. I thought I was just buying my name “hugmamma” so no one else could use it. Had I thought it was making me responsible for doing everything myself, I would never have bought my domain name.

    Please help. I’ve no idea what to do now. That all occurred in June, and only now am I being told something is different, that it was an oversight on WordPress’ part. I’m really confused.

    Thanks for the help.

    The blog I need help with is hugmamma.com.

    What site of yours did they say was move to .ORG?

    This site, http://hugmamma.com/ , is most definitely still right here at wordpress.com.

    Now I am confused because http://hugmamma.com/ sure looks like it is still hosted on WordPress.COM to me and looking at Whois shows the name servers still pointing to WordPress.COM

    WordPress.ORG is not a host – they are the keepers of the WordPress software.

    I’m wondering if perhaps staff sent a guided transfer notice to the wrong account owner?
