About a month ago, I began blogging on wordpress.com. I have been considering migrating over to wordpress.org in order to take advantage of the advertising option. I am wanting someone in the know to answer the following questions for me:
-How difficult is it to migrate from wordpress.com, to wordpress.org?
-will I be able to keep all my subscribers/comments/likes etc?
-Will I still be able to browse other wordpress.com blogs like you can in 'reader'?
I am also wondering if it would be financially worth it to migrate as I know you have to pay for hosting etc, so here is a run down on my stats:
In just over one month the site has been visited nearly 29,000 times. On the busiest day I had 5,500 views.
I have 1303 subscribers, and that grows by the day.
I get an average of 1500 views per day.
I am doing an interview with a melbourne magazine tomorrow which has a huge circulation and once that is published, the views will also increase. I have also filmed with channel 7 recently, and when that goes to air, the views will also be substantial.
Based on those stats, could I make any money from this?
Here is the site: http://onethousandsingledays.com/
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Am very new to 'websites' I created the site myself, and it was a challenge. Am also wondering if wordpress.org is harder to use.
The blog I need help with is onethousandsingledays.com.
