Lost WordPress.com site when switching to self-hosted site

    Hi,

    I reset my DNS servers to point back to my hosting site at BlueHost (they were pointing to wordpress) and then installed wordpress on my site. Only problem is that now my original wordpress site has disappeared off of wordpress’s servers. When I go to http://www.jakebaileydotcom.wordpress.com it leads to my new (and contentless) site http://www.byjakebailey.com.

    I need access to the http://www.jakebaileydotcom.wordpress.com site in order to copy the previous blog posts into the new self-hosted site on BlueHost (www.byjakebailey.com). How do I do this? Why has my wordpress.com site somehow synced and/or erased from this switchover?

    Any help would be hugely appreciated as I’m freaking out a bit over the loss.

    Best,
    Ryan
