    OK, I started with a free wordpress blog http://activistmommy.wordpress.com but I wanted to remove the .wordpress so I bought the domain mapping and the hosting through wordpress so I have jsut http://activistmommy.com. Now I was offered a free hosting package by my company and I want to move my blog there so I can have access to the CSS and such without paying for upgrades. But I can't find out how. Everythign I've read is for moving a free .wordpress blog to a host then doing domain mapping. Did I mess up by going with wordpress hosting first? Am I going to ahve to wait until my hosting is up first?

    As you explore your options on your WordPress.com hosted blog, you'll find the option to Export.

    Do that. You'll get a file to save. That contains your posts, categorys and comments.

    Once your new self-hosted blog is up, you'll find the option to Import that data. Manage -> Import, choose WordPress.
