    I can’t figure out why the tags on my blog don’t show up in “Reader”. I’ve used less than 15 per post. And my site has been up over a year. I must be missing something obvious.

    The blog I need help with is adistantview.com.

    That site is not hosted by wordpress.COM and is not a pray of the wordpress.COm blogging community. Our wordpress.COm support docs do not apply to it. Moreover, as your site is not hosted here any notion that your posts will appear on the wordpress.COM Topics and Categories pages is incorrect.

    Yes my site is hosted at BlueHost but I see no way of getting my site hosted on WordPress.com. When I log into WordPress.com I see “My sites” and “Reader”, my plan is titled “free”. Does this mean I need to purchase one of the plans titled “add-ons for jetpack sites”. Or am I missing something?

    Your site is not hosted by wordpress.com. You can manage it from your wordpress.COM account because it’s linked via Jetpack. However, your posts will not be displayed on the WordPress.COM Tags and Categories pages because the site is not hosted by wordpress.COM. Upgrades are available only for sites hosted by wordpress.COM. Are you clear on that?

    P.S. I apologize for the typo above.
    pray of the wordpress.COM blogging community was meant to be part of the wordpress.COM blogging community.

    Yes, I’m clear. However I see no way of getting my site hosted on wordpress.com. There is no link, I can’t find it under search and hosting.wordpress.com brings me to an obsolete page. “Support” seems to be more of a how to set up your website nothing I can see about switching hosts.

    re: switching hosts
    I wish you had said that up front. :)
