When I upgrade, does the URL change? How will followers find the new site?

I may upgrade from a free .wordpress.com blog to premium soon. Assumedly that will take off the .wordpress part of the URL. But followers may not know that, unless they see a post I’m going to do announcing it. But what if they miss the announcement and try to go to the old .wordpress.com blog?

How do I not lose followers when I upgrade?
