Mapping my blogs to another domain
Please post here once you’ve got your new site connected to Jetpack so that I can migrate your followers.
Hi! Thanks for the help and links to information. My new self-hosted wordpress template site is already connected to JetPack. What do I do now? I see a lot of options under the JetPack and am a little confused. Do I need to do the site-redirect upgrade for my other two sites first? Thank you!
Ok, so I purchased the Site Redirect for each of my blogs. I don’t have them pointing there yet because I still don’t understand how to get them to show up at my self-hosted site. I already have a wordpress theme I’m using with my self-hosted site so how do I get each of my blogs to appear with their original themes, appearance and posts/content, from a place on my own domain? Thanks for help. This is really confusing and frustrating for me.
Okay, I’m going to have to tackle a few things one at a time here. So please bear with me.
Subscriber migration from ethnostravel.wordpress.com to AmaliaVida.com is done.

Thank you! Can you clarify for me what my subscribers will see when they go to my blogs? I don’t have the site redirects on right now for my self-hosted site. Does that make a difference until I update it? Thanks again!

anyone going to your WordPress.com URLs will see the wordpress.com sites. However, none of your subscribers will see anything in their reader or email that you publish on your WordPress.com sites because you have moved them all to your self-hosted site.
Okay. That makes sense. What do I need to do for my posts/content from my wordpress.com blog sites to appear on my self-hosted AmaliaVida.com site? Is this possible?
On an ongoing basis? Or just taking it all from there and putting it in the new blog at once?
On an ongoing basis: that’s a problem. It’s possible technically,b ut staff have said that if an external blog is just re-posting stuff from your WP.com blog, that the WP.com blog be set to private. Otherwise Google penalizes WP for having duplicate spam content.
At once? Easy. Go to the dashboard Tools page of the WP.com blog, and click to create an Export file. Include all media. Then on the dashboard of the other blog, click Import and away you go. It can take a few hours to import. Be sure and check to make sure it all got ported over. Sometimes exports get stuck.
Doing it all at once is what I prefer to do, so I’ll give the export and import a try. Thank you!
Yes, Raincoaster has set you on the correct path. And let me also encourage you NOT to post duplicate content on two sites.
Here is a support page regarding the exporting process:
Also, once everything is set up at your new site, don’t forget to log into your WordPress.com site’s dashboard and go to Store–> Domains to turn on your Site Redirect upgrades for both of your old sites.
Hi again! I’ve been working on doing the export and import that you both recommended. Thanks for all the help. I still need a bit more help though, cause now I’m having an interruption in the import. It says this: Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache Server at amaliavida.com Port 80
Oh boy, I’ve also talked to GoDaddy, my host for the site, and they’re of no help. I have a custom WordPress template installed and running already on my amaliavida.com site that I’m trying to import to…think that I need to do something to that? Can I do it from my dashboard or do I need to import files through GoDaddy? Thanks again!
Because your new site is self-hosted with a different host, support staff at WordPress.com do not have access to your site’s files or the ability to provide support for your import issue.
However, you can find a ton of support for your self-hosted WordPress site here:

Thanks! I actually figured out by googling that it was a port 80 issue. I just had to shut down my Skype and Evernote so it wasn’t take up all the space on port 80. Crazy stuff, but so glad to have learned all this and that it worked.
Thanks again for all your help :)
