Problems switching to WordPress.org
Good Morning, I have posted the below in the WordPress.org forums and received the below response. Could someone kindly help me out? I am completely at a loss.
I have been reviewing the forums to figure out how to fix my problem, and while there are many people with the same question, I am finding it difficult to understand the answers.
I have a WordPress.com site (satinandsnowflakes.com) – domain purchased through WordPress. I recently bought a theme from outside of WordPress.com and realize that I need a site on .org to install it. I have purchased a domain on Bluehost and installed WordPress with their “one click” option.
I want to be able to develop my new theme on WordPress.org, but when I try to log into my account (from Bluehost), it directs me immediately to my WordPress.com site.
Question 1: How do I find my .org site (domain is also satinandsnowflakes.com)and log into it to upload my new theme?
Question 2: Is there a way to keep the .com site live until I am finished with my .org site?
I am very very very new to this, so if possible, plain language is best for a reply. Thank you very much, and I apologize if I am repeating a frequently asked question.

You need to contact the folks over at wordpress.com to arrange for your domain name to be moved to Bluehost and pointed at your.org site.
The blog I need help with is satinandsnowflakes.com.
If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.
