    I am moving a website from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org and would like to transfer my email subscribers over. Can you help me with this? The website for both the free and the new self-hosted is http://www.girlfriendscoffeehour.com.

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is girlfriendscoffeehour.com.

    Staff can can move your email subscribers only. Followers using the WordPress.com Reader cannot be transferred because there is no WordPress.org Reader or in fact a community with shared in-house features like there is here at WordPress.com. WordPress.org installs are stand alone islands.

    What’s required is:
    installation and activation of the JetPack plugin;
    posting both URLs ie. the underlying .wordpress.com URL and the 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.

    I have activated Jetpack on my self-hosted site.

    Free wordpress URL: girlfriendscoffeehour.wordpress.com
    Self-hosted URL: girlfriendscoffeehour.com

    Tagged with modlook.

    Thank you.

    I’ll be glad to transfer your email subscribers for you. First we’ll just need the owner of girlfriendscoffeehour.wordpress.com to log in and add a message to this thread giving us permission to do that.
    Thanks.

    Hi bonniecribbs – could you please start a new thread and add the word modlook in the Tags section in the right column so Staff will respond. Also – I recommend that you first change your Jetpack-connected domain from 69.195.124.85/~bonniecr/ to bonniecribbs.com or www.bonniecribbs.com before we do the transfer to avoid many issues later. Thanks!
