Just thought I showcase - as a side comment - the minimum recurring yearly cost of blogging with WordPress.com, as it stands today.
$152 + the one-time cost of premium theme.
Obviously not everyone may want to get everything in the list above, but people would typically expect (1) domain names, (2) storage/bandwidth and (3) design flexibility.
So how does it compare to external hosting? Is WordPress (.com or .org) the most expensive blogging platform out there in general?
The blog I need help with is webwanderings.wordpress.com.
