We are happy to help you move your content from a self-hosted version of the WordPress.org software to WordPress.com! In this guide, we will walk you through how to move the following items:

  • All posts and comments
  • Any attached media items, including photos, videos, and embedded files

Your theme, custom domain, and personal settings will not be transferred over, but you will find additional instructions to follow to address that at the end of this guide. If you haven’t already, create a WordPress.com user account and blog at https://wordpress.com/start

We will then begin the process of moving your content.

Step One: Export your existing content.
