wordpress.com versus self hosted - which and why?

  1. Just wondering if people are hosting WordPress on their own webspace, or using wordpress.com hosting - and their reasons for choosing one over the other.

    In terms of my own use of WordPress, I have a mixture -

    http://www.beckettwebdesign.com - home of my freelance activities, with a completely bespoke template, and of course the domain name. I needed the freedom to integrate a forum in future, and other bits and pieces, so it was natural to host it myself.

    http://jonbeckett73.wordpress.com - personal blog with observations, thoughts, etc - nothing earth shattering or important - hence a stock wordpress hosted blog.

    http://jonathanbeckett.wordpress.com - development related blog with more professional content - snippets of code, discussion of commerical tools, programming methodology - but on a wider subject area than the beckettwebdesign site - hence it being separate.

    So which are you using? Your own hosting, or wordpress hosting? and why ?

    The blog I need help with is jonbeckett73.wordpress.com.
