I help with another blog and am hoping I can find out how to do a change. The old wordpress.com site was/is? cindyfrench.wordpresss.com She then 'thought' she would with the help of godaddy...go to a self-hosted .org site and attempted such and the name was cindyhfrench.com . There have been too many issues and she wishes to change back to her old .com website.
I went and looked at changing from .org to com but don't know if that applies when she just want to take back her old blog name and information . I copied the instructions . Are these still applicable in this case.
Moving from WordPress.org
If you are moving from a self-hosted blog using the WordPress.org software, you can move your blog to our WordPress.com service with the following steps:
Register a WordPress.com account and blog at http://wordpress.com/signup/
In the old blog, go to Tools → Export and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.
In the new blog (on WordPress.com), go to Tools → Import → WordPress and upload the file you downloaded in step 2. After you upload the file, you can choose the option to Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files.
