    You must still have access to your old blog if you are paying $ every month, if not your hosts do. You could ask them for new login info.

    You need to go to your Godaddy domain manager and set the nameservers of your new domain name to go to your old blog. If you don't know them, ask your current host.

    Then maybe a WP guide could fill this in better, but I think you would need to change a few lines in wp-config on your current blog???
    ..as well as any styling changes you made to the theme.
