    Hello, I understand that I need to contact support to move my subscribers from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org site. I installed JetPack and the two sites are connected. Can anyone help me with this?
    Thanks,
    Melinda

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

    Provided you have installed and activated the JetPack plugin http://jetpack.me on your WordPress.org install, and you post the relevant URL(s) into a forum thread, Staff will do the transfer of both subscribers and stats for you. NOTE: I have tagged this thread for their attention.

    Thank you, timetheif. The urls are melindacopp.wordpress.com and melindacopp.com. I believe I have everything set up correctly, and this morning I posted a notice on my wordpress.com site to alert readers of the change.
    Thanks again!
    Melinda

    Hi Melinda, I started the process to transfer your followers to your new blog at melindacopp.com, as requested. They should appear on your new blog soon.

    Your email followers will continue to receive email updates, and your WordPress.com followers will continue to see your new posts in the Reader. If your WordPress.com followers would like to receive email updates, as well, they can subscribe via email on your new blog.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that!
