How can I upgrade my WP Blog I don't want to self host my own WP account

  1. I currently have the free version of WP and I now want to upgrade so I can get follow links. What are my options and how do I go about this?

    The blog I need help with is yourtablecloth.wordpress.com.

  2. There are no upgrade options you can purchase here. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and have separate logins. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

    You hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/
    You set up a WordPress.org install http://wordpress.org/
    You move your content by export http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into your install.

    P.S. if the only reason you are doing this is to have do-follow comment links then think about this at a deeper level. They attract opportunistic spammers and that's why no-follow comments links were introduced in 2005. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/12/03/links-no-follow-and-do-follow/

  3. P.S. In case it's not evident to you in my first comment there is no upgrade you can purchase to change your links to do-follow links on WordPress.com blog. Frankly, it sounds to me like you are ill-informed when it comes to some very important aspects of linking and blogging.
