I just upgraded my Wordpress site to be connected to my own domain: stephenkairys,.com.

However, my existing info (e.g. professional info I previously entered) seems to be gone. (Or maybe I just can't find it.)

Where can I retrieve it?

Thanks!

Good question. :)

OK, I see the problem. Seems like WP created a 2nd site (sub-site?).
Wordpress :List of sites
The first site (outlined in green) is where I have the existing info.
The stephenkairys.com site (in blue) is where I now need this info to be.

Can it be moved/copied?
Thanks.

I think you need to contact wordpress.com support to get this resolved.  You just wanted to map your .com domain name to the existing site and they seemed to have created a new site.  Because WordPress manages the server settings, there's nothing you or I can do to change that.
