The blog I need help with is wellmarkco.wordpress.com. June 6, 2013 at 4:08 pm #1297095 raincoasterMember No. You need a completely different blog, on a separate host. You need to buy blog hosting and install software from WordPress.ORG on it and then you can use plugins. Author Posts The topic ‘Free account and plugins’ is closed to new replies.
