Hello members and subscribers thanks for staying and browsing my blog I apologize for not updating as often and will be back to posting regularly. I wanted to write this blog mostly for WordPress users and those who use WordPress.com. WordPresss.com currently what I’m using does all the hosting and gives you access to most plugins, they manage the server for you and handle all the software you need and even give you a lot of tools to make a successful website. Now the pros for wordpress.com is that it makes it easier to use and a little less work to manage your blog for a hole year. The biggest con is that they charge $300 to get the best plan which is a business account to give you all these features.

Now they have other plans as well but the business plan gives you everything you need so for the most part all doing is posting adding content to your site and adding plugins and just basic stuff to make your website look good. The problem is the heavy $300 fee you have to pay and if your not making any profit from your blog from google ad-sense or any other income from your business than it will be costly to run the business site. And may not be worth it as well. This is the main reason why I am going to wordpress.org because you can always find a host online that may charge anywhere from $10-$20. So currently right now I’m looking for a sever now to cut the cost or better to say operating cost of my business. So for all those looking into weather is better to use wordpress.com or org. Please go to the WordPress website to read both descriptions to what best fits your needs and your business needs.

Maybe your a fast growing business and you make enough to run that one time fee a year and you need WordPress to manage for you because of time and labor. And time is money so you can’t argue with that. But if you just need your blog for advertisement and to use to have an online store than I would recommend finding a host on the internet that will give you a great rate that is affordable. Thanks you for reading and I will have something soon on my Artist tips page talking about the difference with WordPress.com and WordPress.org.

Thanks for reading and comment below or ask any questions you may have!
