1, 0 … So after a couple of days I made the switch over. A had a few technical hiccups on some setting errors on my end. I also lost the look and feel of the original blog, because you can’t bring these over for free. You almost have to start over from scratch and possibly buy a new WordPress theme to establish your look and feel.
I did notice that as a result of the move it seems I have gotten some kind of incoming offers for WordPress plugins. It sort of suggests that when you move away from a mere free account blog on wordpress.com you may actually open your doors more to the internet.
