Purchased domain. Web guy trying to customize it ad it is not allowing hi.m. Please help. Deleted email with info.
The blog I need help with is februaryjames.com.
Hmmm apparently web guy says he’s unable to customize it for me. So confused. Thanks for checking

“Banners” had better not be advertising because if they are your blog will be suspended. No blogger initiated advertising is allowed on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.

On one hand, none of the characteristic “blog” features like categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted WordPress.com blog without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

He says I need to contact someone to have my site transferred to another host site so that he can build in wordpress.org. however I’m unable to see how that can be done. Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
