I have my web page linked to my blog hosted on wordPress.com. I'm using the latter as a newsletter for products and services listed on my site. In an ideal world, I'd like the image or in other words, the "look and feel" of my site to be replicated across to my blog. But my WordPress.com hosted blog looks different to the look of the pages on my site because of the restricted themes (fonts and colours) available to the hosted WordPress.com blog.
I'm considering the following options:-
1. Leave things as they are
2. Download WordPress and host it on my own hosted website.
3. Drop my current WordPress blog and just post newsletter type items onto my site by update my "news" page regularly via ftp
(1) still leaves me with the different "look and feel" issue.
(2) means I have to get a lot more into HTML programming to try to get my own hosted blog to look like the rest of my site in terms of text and graphics and background colours etc, but I really don't have the time to do that right now as I'm running a business.
(3) means time wasted doing regular ftp uploads and just posting news items means I don't really have an interactive blog any more where people can post comments
Has anyone gone through this same decision - making process? Is option (2) really that tough and time - consuming to get into?
