I followed one of the answers provided in in this post to download a blog's posts, and only that, no external links, but the recursive feature does not seem to work, as only the index file is downloaded. Any suggestions?

$ wget      --recursive   --page-requisites      --html-extension      --convert-links      --restrict-file-names=windows      --domains https://bestblog.wordpress.com/  https://bestblog.wordpress.com/

You should specify the --domains flag without the scheme:

--domains bestblog.wordpress.com
