    I just transferred my blog to wordpress.org using a bluehost hosted server. Why am I able to still login and edit my blog using my wordpress.com dashboard?

    Were you using a custom domain name on your wp.com blog? If so, when did the transfer take place?

    It will take up to 72 hours for the domain name to be fully transferred to your new self-hosted site. Right now, you are just logging straight back into your wordpress,com site. Try waiting a couple of days.

    Of course, keep in mind that you can still access your old http://yourblogname.wordpress.com site (unless you shut that down specifically), since it works independent from anything you do on your Bluehost server.
