So confused

  1. What is the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org. I saw that you can download wordpress or create a blog for free at wordpress.com. I read somewhere that you can't use ads on wordpress blogs. I'm confused. I just want to set up a couple of blogs and monetize them eventually. Help please.

  2. Okay, I see now. I have a blog that is hosted by WordPress. If it is hosted by WordPress then I am not allowed to use ads?

  3. Okay, can I delete this stupid question!!??

  4. That is correct. In the future, using ads may be available to us through a paid upgrade as revealed in the last paragraph on the features page: http://wordpress.com/features/ . If having ads is important to you then you can get a webhost and self-host a blog using the software from http://wordpress.org/ .

    If you have not seen it, here is a good description of the differences between .com and .org: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=3700&page&replies=1

  5. Not a stupid question, and sorry, no you cannot. You can however mark it as "resolved."
