 Post subject: Moving data, possibly

I am interested in moving all my data (essentially the whole blog) to another wordpress.com blog.

Any advice on how to do it without losing all the structure in my archives and such?

Or do folks here think it is not worth the trouble to change addresses and just change the title instead, leaving the old address intact?

I know for self-hosted that's actually pretty easy to do. You could just go into phpMyAdmin, for example, export the contents of your database (where all your blog settings and posts/comments are stored) and then import that into the next blog. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how that would be done on a hosted blog, or if they even provide that option. If they do, my guess would be the process is equally easy.

The problem, however, would likely be making it easy for your users to follow you. If you're using Feedburner for your RSS feed, making sure your users make the transition with you shouldn't be too difficult, as you could just change the source of the feed. If you're using WordPress's default feed, then all of your users would also have to change their feed settings.

Go to your Dashboard and click Manage -> Import/Export. Is that what you're looking for?

Found it. exported the current blog and inputted (is that even a word =P) into the new one.

It did not move over all the links and such I guess that will be done manually.

I am still undecided on moving though. The only thing I was really changing was the name.
