    I want to change the name of my blog, so is there a way to import an old wordpress.com blog?

    Not exactly sure what you mean by the “name” of your blog. If you mean the actual name of it, it’s Dashboard -> Options -> General -> Weblog title.

    If you mean the hostname of your blog, (ie the ‘enigmablog’ bit) this topic has been covered *MANY* times in the past in the forums. What you’re going to have to do is export your blog as an RSS feed as explained here. The next step is to convert the RSS feed into something that our version of WordPress can read. Wank has suggested using a program called RSS2MT. Do that and then import using the import MT function within your new blog.

    There’s a fairly detailed walkthru on this already in the forums. A search for “RSS2MT” and/or “import” will probably pull it up.

    Hope this helps,
