    Hello

    http://walkloss.com

    About a month ago I set up the above blog on wordpress.com which is now doing well and picking up some traffic. However, I’m already feeling restricted by the features (esp the lack of SEO capabilities) so decided to transfer the blog to wordpress.org. It all looked easy enough at first glance, I signed up with Bluehost and did what I thought was the one-touch installation. I also downloaded WordPress 2.7 to my desktop but everything I read now doesn’t seem to make any sense at all. The Domain Name is currently being hosted by Fibranet and although I did update the DNS to show the bluehost info, I’ve now had to switch them back before the blog goes down.

    I don’t know what I’m supposed to do – the blog is still on wordpress.com and I have no idea how to transfer it over.

    Can someone please help?
