Will blog posts stay forever?

    Being new to blogging, I have a question about the permanency (if that is a word) of blog posts.

    1.
    Does WordPress ever delete posts that I wrote in my blog?
    I.e., is there something like a "best before" date, or will they delete older posts if I reach my 3GB limit?

    2.
    Can I search my own blog for stuff I wrote a long time ago?

    3.
    Should I ever turn to another blog service (or using an offline blog writing tool), can I extract all my posts from wordpress?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Best regards,
    Gabriel.

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

  2. 1) No - no "read before date" - 3GB only counts for pictures and other media / files uploaded - you reach the limit they just take away your ability to put new pictures on your site - or you can buy an upgrade for more space

    2) There is a search Widget for your blog -

    3) Probably - you can export from here - but it depends on where you move to and if they will import from here - given that something like 20% of the new internet sites use some sort of WordPress software to drive the site - the WordPress export file has become sort of a standard

    Thanks a lot! that pretty much answers my questions.

  4. Also if you reach your 3GB limit you can delete some of your posts/pictures to make room for new ones. Right?

  5. Yes, but if you optimize the photos for the internet before uploading that should never ever be necessary. You can also buy a space upgrade, or just register another free blog, upload there, and hotlink.
