Importing WordPress.com Followers (9 posts)

    I'm about to move my WordPress.com blog over to a self-hosted WordPress blog and I'm worried that I might lose my WordPress.com followers. I have nearly 300 and its taken a while to get them - how do I import them into the new self-hosted version of my blog?

    I also have some email subscribers too - if any one has details of how to keep them it would really help!

    Thanks!

    no, the subscribers who have clicked 'follow' on my blog - I think they're called wordpress.com followers..?

    I just figured this out. Install Jetpack http://jetpack.me/ and connect it to your wordpress.com account. Then, contact wordpress.com tech support and ask them to transfer your wordpress.com subscribers to your self-hosted blog using Jetpack.

    If Jetpack works for you, be sure to click the "Works" button at the bottom of the right column of this page:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/.
    I suspect that most people that take time to rate the compatibility are people that have compatibility issues.

    More info on the Subscriptions feature of Jetpack:
