    I have moved to a self-hosted WordPress.org site http://www.chefslastdiet.com and I have installed the Jetpack plug-ins, but now need help moving my followers to my new site.
    I heard you (WP) can do this for me.

    The blog I need help with is chefslastdiet.com.

    Yes, as you have installed and activated the JetPack plugin http://jetpack.me on your WordPress.org install, and you posted the relevant URL(s) into a forum thread, Staff will do the transfer of both subscribers and stats for you. I’ll tag this thread for Staff. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Howdy,

    Like timethief has said, please confirm the name of the source and destination blogs you wish to have followers transferred between so we can sort this out for you.

    Thanks,

    Any idea when this will happen?

    As soon as Staff get to it. Have you installed and activated Jetpack?

    Yes, I did that with the tranfer, you noted it in your first reply to me.

    Howdy,

    The source URL that you’ve provided is in the wrong format. Because you have a few different blogs with similar names, I need to be certain that we have the right one before going ahead with the migration.

    Is the source blog address:

    http://chefslastdiet.wordpress.com/
    or
    http://nlowell2013.wordpress.com/

    The destination URL is fine. Let me know for definite which one is correct, and I will go ahead ASAP.

    Howdy,

    I have transferred across the subscribers as requested. Be aware that it can take time for the updated numbers to be displayed.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for you help with the transfer!!

    I do have one question, and perhaps I need to ask in WP.org, but since you offered…
    People are having trouble subscribing to my blog on the new site. A few have had no trouble, but one friend has tried three times today, and she’s still not getting the confirmation e-mail.

    Howdy,

    I think we would benefit from discussing this further in a private ticket. I have sent you an e-mail so that we can get to the bottom of what’s going on if you would kindly reply that way.

    Thanks,
