    I’m moving my new blog over from WordPress.com to self-hosted WordPress and would like to move my WordPress followers over to the new blog.

    The old one is http://salondefrance.wordpress.com/ and the new is http://www.alcsalondefrance.fr

    Can anyone help me to do this please?

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

    Try the Jetpack plugin and the Redirect upgrade available from the Store.

    gamenology1 is not correct. You cannot do this transfer yourself. Provided you install and activate the JetPack plugin, Staff can transfer your stats and subscribers for you. Please do that now as I tagged this thread for their assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

    No. JetPack is only for self hosted installs and as you have activated it all that’s needed now is your patience. :)

    Hi there,

    Timethief was correct, this is not something you can do yourself at this time.

    Your WordPress.com subscribers and email followers have been transferred as requested.

    Please note that any WordPress.com followers who opted to receive email updates will need to re-subscribe again on your new site through the Jetpack signup box, otherwise they’ll only see new posts in their Reader. Non-WordPress.com email subscribers will continue to get email updates.

    However, Gamenology did have a good point. You might think about setting up a Site Redirect for your WordPress.com site at salondefrance.wordpress.com to send your site visitors to your new domain. Otherwise, people will still be able to subscribe on your old site.

    Do you wish your stats to be merged as well?

    Yes it would be great please!
    And thanks for your advice jackiedana i’m quite lost with jetpack about all these upgrades. Thus i’ll buy the Site redirect!
