    I pointed the DNS to BlueHost.
    Do not like it and want come back to wordpress.
    I suppose since I have a custom domain it would be wordpress.org
    I bought the domain through wordpress upgrade

    But would be happy to just get back to wordpress.com

    I have imported the data and it is there but have no idea how to get the DNS pointed back

  3. Read http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    I suppose since I have a custom domain it would be wordpress.org

    No. WordPress.org is support for self-hosted WordPress installs (like you had on BlueHost). WordPress.COM is ... the only place WordPress hosts blogs :)

    Hate to sound "stupid" but I get it .com.

    So, how do I get it away from Bluehost and back to wordpress.com

  5. Did you read the link?

    Just as you pointed the DNS to bluehost, point it BACK to wordpress.com.

    If you can't figure that out, go to http://en.support.wordpress.com/ and ask for help.

    Yes, I did read the link.
    It does not address the issue. Domain management is in the "store" and that is where I went to move it to Bluehost.

    However there is no "store" or place to manage domains in the dash board as it appears from Bluehost.

    I have searched until I can hardly read anymore.
    Howbout helping me get back to wordpress..........

    Thanks

    NameServers aren't pointed from the dashboard. Your registrar has to point them. Whoever you registered your domain with is where you need to go to point your NameServers back to wordpress.com's NameServers.

    Also, if you have custom plugins and such on your site with BlueHost, it's quite likely that those things will not work on your wordpress.com site.

    As before mentioned, if you need help with getting your site pointed to wordpress.com, you can contact them for assistance with that.

    If you registered your domain through wordpress.com, then you will log into your account there and use them to point the NameServers. It is not something you would do from BlueHost, nor your site on BlueHost.
