    That domain is currently a self-hosted WordPress install.

    I am not entirely clear on what it is that you want to do.

    If you are now the owner of the domain and want to map it to a WordPress.com site, then you will need to first register a site on WordPress.com and then purchase the domain mapping upgrade to connect the domain to it. If you want to import the content of the old site, you can do that as well.

    See here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

    If what you want to do isn’t what I described above, then please be clearer.

    Another thing you should be completely clear on before doing any of the above is that if you want to import the content of the old site that it meets the WordPress.com Terms of Service, so please fully review first.

    Your self-hosted site is already attached to your profile. If you hover your mouse over your username you’ll see it there.

    But the “Follow” button in the WordPress.com Admin bar is available only for sites hosted by WordPress.com. If your WordPress.com friends want to add your site to their Reader, then they will have to add it manually. http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#follow-a-blog-not-on-wordpress-com

    Another option is that you install the jetpack plugin to your standalone WordPress site. Questions about jetpack should be asked over at the forum for self-hosted sites http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/jetpack We cannot help you here with questions for the standalone WordPress software or plugins.

    Best wishes
