    I am currently running the Personal theme. If I buy the $129 transfer package to move to self hosting will that theme come with my blog?

    will I have to purchase it again? How will my blog look once moved?

    The blog I need help with is cookecapemay.wordpress.com.

    WordPress.com Premium themes cannot be used outside of WordPress.com and would not be included with the Guided Transfer service. In fact, you would need to switch your blog to one of the free themes before Guided Transfer would be available to purchase.

    That theme is not available for WordPress.org installs at all. You will have to choose a different, WP.org theme.

    Rootjosh, Raincoaster thank you for the replies. A followup question then. If I pick another theme on .org or purchase etc. Can I still export my content in a guided transfer or on my own? Or would you suggest changing the theme/appearance after the export is completed

    I would get everything transferred over successfully and then start work on adding or modifying a new theme.
