WordPress.org or .com: Choosing the Right Platform

WordPress.com or WordPress.org?

If you are thinking of starting your own blog, the first question that comes to mind is if you should have a hosted blog with WordPress.com, or if you should host your own blog by downloading the WordPress software from WordPress.org.

In short, while with WordPress.org you have to download the WordPress software, have your own hosting and install the software yourself, with WordPress.com it is a much more straight forward process, as all is done for you. Though hosting your own blog will give you much more flexibility when compared to having it hosted with WordPress.com.

This is a decision every blogger must make before starting the blog. If you are not a savvy blogger, and do not know what is the difference between hosting your own blog or having it hosted with WordPress.org, read Hosted WordPress.com vs. Self-Hosted from WordPress.org and learn about the two options available and what are the pros and cons of each. After reading this blogger tip, it should be easier for you to decide for which option to go.
