    When I move wisdomandlife.wordpress.com to self hosting today, (I own my domain:
    cjpwisdomandlife.com) will I also lose all of my WordPress followers? I have email followers as well as people who clicked my follow button. If I won’t lose them, how do I recover them once my site is up and running?

    The blog I need help with is cjpwisdomandlife.com.

    I’ll flag this thread so that after you install the Jetpack plugin staff can transfer your followers. You need to do that first.

    Awesome! Thank you. Thank you!
    I also just transfered another blog to self hosting
    Scrantonpageturner.wordpress.com
    to
    scrantonpageturner.com. Can I also move my followers from that blog as well? I’ll install jetpack right now on scrantonpageturner.com

    I don’t see any Jetpack-powered blogs connected to your account.

    Did you install, activate, and connect the Jetpack plugin? http://jetpack.me/

    If so, which WordPress.com account did you connect it to?

    Still doing some maintenance on Wisdom and Life

    Let’s try this again.
    Staff can can move your followers. What’s required is:
    installation and activation of the JetPack plugin on your self hosted install;
    posting both URLs (.wordpress.com blog URL and domain URL) into this forum thread;
    tagging the thread with modlook in the sidebar;
    subscribing to the thread so you are notified when Staff make the transfer.

    OK:
    The blog I want to move followers to to start with is:
    scrantonpageturner.wordpress.com
    to:
    scrantonpageturner.com
    @timethief, @macmanx

    THINK I have setup jetpack correctly.

    scrantonpageturner looks like it’s setup correctly.

    I have transferred those followers as requested.

    scrantonpageturner.com is the only Jetpack-powered blog connected to your account.

    Which WordPress.com account did you connect cjpwisdomandlife.com to?

    #1165999

    I havent set up cjpwisdomandlife yet. Still putting finishing touches on the blog, @macmanx. Once I can go in and play I will set up Jetpack then will come back here and let you know when I’m ready.

    Thanks again.

    Does it take a moment for the stats and followers to propagate, @macmanx?

    Stats cannot be transferred, and the followers have been transferred, but the total follower count can take a few hours to update.
