Hello all, I'm new to the world of WordPress but am somewhat familiar with HTML and CSS. I've got a few questions before I start pulling the trigger on the services I'd like to purchase and was hoping I could get some direction. I currently own a domain name through GoDaddy that I'd like to forward to my WordPress blog, please help me answer the following questions:
1) Being that I own my domain name already I should only need to purchase the $12 mapping to allow forwarding of my domain to WordPress.com?
2) I am currently using the Coraline theme for my blog, if I purchase the $14.97 custom CSS service will this allow me to customize this theme and do things like remove the links in the header and remove the footer information at the bottom of this theme?
3) If in the future I decide I want to move away from the WordPress site and host this blog through GoDaddy or another host will the site be transferable, can I export the entire site at a future date?
The part I'm confused about is how I would start with the site I've created through WordPress and go ahead and do the transfer to GoDaddy before really starting the blogging and promotion of the site. Is there a piece of WordPress WYSIWYG type software I would use to continue to blog or could I continue to blog through the WordPress log on but have the site hosted at another provider?
Thanks in advance, hope all these comments and questions aren't too confusing.
The blog I need help with is spotandoscar.wordpress.com.
