    If you used a 301 plugin or something, and there is no change to your permalink structures, then as long as your properly installed your new domain ... you should submit your sitemap from the new site to G. You can wait quite some time perhaps before completely deactivating the original wordpress. You just want to be sure that every post/page on the new site matches the exact URL slug and/or permalinks from your original site, and that the new site is indexed.

    I think you should keep your original blog intact other than whatever 301 mechanism you are using. This should keep the link juice flowing until it's completely indexed. I believe at that time you could finally deactivate and remove your original site. Maybe someone will weigh in with some alternate view soon, but this seems fine to me.
