I recently moved my wordpress.com to a wordpress.org and wanted to move my followers from realistlounge.wordpress.com to realistlounge.com.
I have Jetpack enabled, but am not sure if there is anything else I should do like set up an RSS feed or something else. Can anyone help?
The blog I need help with is realistlounge.wordpress.com.

I don’t show an active site at http://realistlounge.com/ currently – I’m receiving a 500 (Internal Server Error) error when trying to go to that site.
Once your site is active and connected to your WordPress.com account, I would be happy to transfer the users who have subscribed to your blog either by email or via the WordPress.com Reader once I can verify your Jetpack connection.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I’ve gotten the site back up and running! Thank you for letting me know it was down!
Your subscribers and followers have been transferred as requested. Just a heads-up 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.
You might also want to consider a Site Redirect upgrade to automatically have visitors to http://realistlounge.wordpress.com sent to http://realistlounge.com, and ensure that new subscribers sign up on the right blog.
Best of luck with your self-hosted site!
Thank you so much for helping me with this! You’re a life saver! I’ll be looking into the Site Redirect as well. Thank you again!
You’re very welcome. Happy blogging!
