    I recently successfully export and import my blog from wordpress.com to self hosted. But after I imported everything, whenever I typed in my self hosted address, it redirects to my wordpress.com address. I am not sure what is causing that. I checked my Settings>Permalinks and it all shows the self hosted address. What am I missing? The old blog address is bridalifestyle.wordpress.com and the new blog address is http://www.bridalifestyle.com/blog

    Click on the link provided by you. It redirects to your wordpress.com blog. It seems nothing is imported from your old blog.

    That is so strange, if I click on "visit site" from my tool bar up top, it goes to http://www.bridalifestyle.com/blog and work perfectly. But if I just type it in the address bar on my browser, it goes to bridalifestyle.wordpress.com.....

    Not only that... all links point to your old blog. Re-import/ redo after cleaning up what is presently there.
