    Hi
    I think I’ve made a mess and I can’t sort it. I have a blog set up under email katytonge@sky.com om WP. I set up new account under email mrscmonkey@sky.com, bought upgrade bundle $99, changed domain to mrscmonkey.com and bought Newsy. I tried to transfer everthing from my old blog to this new one but it hasn’t worked. What have I done and how do I fix it? I want to play with Newsy!
    Thank you
    A very Worried Monkey

    The blog I need help with is mrscmonkeydotcom.wordpress.com

    Hello, Mrs. Monkey. It looks like the content of your old blog just needs to be exported and then imported into your new blog using our instructions from our support guide. Can you let us know if you’ve had any luck with that or where the transfer is breaking down?

    Hi

    Thanks. I’ve transferred posts etc. I set up domain name of mrscmonkey.com but it’s not showing? i’ve selected it in upgrade store as default but is showing in url as mrscmonkeydotcom.wordpress.com. Any ideas?

    Will the people following my blog have followed the blog move or do I have to refind them?

    What do I do about the old blog – delete?

    Thanks, I do appreciate this.

    A happier Monkey

    another question!

    askimet stats – do I automatically get them with a premium theme? If so, where do I put my askimet number thingy!

    Hi mrscmonkey,

    It looks like you got your domain name working properly — mrscmonkey.com loads just fine for me. Does it load for you? Domain name updates can take a while to propagate, so it should fully work over the next few days.

    Followers on your old blog will not automatically transfer to the new one, since they are two separate blogs. But you can get the word out about your move. You could place a link to the new blog on your old blog, and maybe write a post about the move. If you had an email list, you could send out an email blast to announce the move. I would keep your old blog up for at least a little while to give people a chance to find your new blog.
