    I just transferred my old WordPress.com blog to a new on WordPress.org.

    What should I do with my old blog because I do not want to delete it,
    should I change the visibility of my WordPress.com blog in private or
    something else or nothing to do?

    Best regards.

    The blog I need help with is osvemuisvacemu.wordpress.com.

    To change blog visibility to public from private go to > Settings > Reading. See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Thank you timethief,

    I know the procedure.

    My question was:
    What should I do with my old blog because I do not want to delete it,
    should I change the visibility of my WordPress.com blog in private or
    something else or nothing to do?

    Best regards.

    If you set it to private it disappears from the search engines faster than if you delete it. That is what I always recommend.

    Thank you raincoaster,

    I know the difference between those two actions.

    My question was:
    What should I do with my old blog because I do not want to delete it,
    should I change the visibility of my WordPress.com blog in private or
    something else or nothing to do?

    Another good reason to mark it private is that it is not unknown for people to want to return to WordPress.com after switching to .org!
