I currently have a blog on WP.com that's mapped to my domain. I want to move it to wp.org, but want change the theme a bit, so I don't want to switch the blog right over to .org.
Do I need to have the domain free to start this or can I keep my wp.com blog up right until I'm ready to switch over? Is there a way to work with my .org theme without having the domain empty?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
