  3. if i purchase a domain, will i have adverts on my blog?

    Yes unless you purchase the No Ads Upgrade

    To see the ads - log out and visit your blog - the standard ads are not shown to logged in users.

    Disadvantage of domain name purchase and mapping - you need to pay the registration and mapping every year

    Advantage - usually easier to remember and much more class and identification

    timethief has a nice Post on why to register and map a domain name - visit her site (she helps in the forum) - or she might drop by and leave a link for you

  4. There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes anything stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading

    Ss for the benefits see here > Do I need a Domain?
