    I want to switch to wordpress.org so I can get paid to blog & have more freedom. Can I transfer all my wordpress.com blogs,background,theme,etc.
    Blog url: http://ericastrawberrykane.wordpress.com/

  2. Keep in mind that getting paid to to blog takes a lot of work and you need to be getting a lot of traffic in order to make up for hosting costs. Switching to WordPress.org will give you full access to the code though. Note that support for WordPress.org is don through volunteer forums at http://wordpress.org/support/

    You can transfer your data using the Tools → Export and Tools → Import options in each blog.

    You cannot transfer the theme or settings, but most free themes on WordPress.com are also available in the WordPress.org Theme Directory.

    If you purchase the Guided Transfer service, we move everything for you including setting up one of the free themes from WordPress.com on your new WordPress install as well as setting up the widgets to match as closely as possible with WordPress.com. Some features such as the subscriptions option are not the same with a WordPress.org setup.
