I have an existing blog at pragmaticstartup.wordpress.com. What's the best way of migrating this blog over to my webfaction instance?

You just need to create a new WordPress application from the WebFaction Control Panel, and then follow the standard Wordpress.com Export/Import Process to copy your data over:

http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/

Here is the most important excerpt:

  1. In the old [wordpress.com] blog, go to Tools ? Export and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.

  2. In the new [WebFaction] blog, go to Tools ? Import ? WordPress and upload the file you downloaded in step 1. Make sure that you choose the option to Download & import file attachments. This option will be available after you upload the file.

Let me know if you have any questions.
