    Hi there. I just signed up for one of your free blogs. I wanted to try it out as I am interested in using your auction plugin in the near future. However, I can’t even upload a photo to my blog. Do I need to pay for a blog to post photos and/or use the Auction plugin?
    Thank you for your help.

    You can upload photos to a WordPress.com blog, but you can’t use plugins. Those are for Worspress.ORG blogs only.

    Thank you. How do I get a WordPress.org blog? I’m really doing this so that I can use your auction plugin. I have a friend that uses it on her WordPress website.
    How much is it for the cheapest, basic .org or website that you can use this plugin with?
    Thank you again.

    Figure $20 per month.

    You have to find a web host that’s trustworthy, buy hosting from them, install software from wordpress.org, and then you are responsible for all updates and tech support for your own blog.

    Could I use it on my current website?

    http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ is a wordpress.com blog. A wordpress.org blog is completely separate, but you can just import the content from http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ to your new site and then set http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ to private.

    Thanks. When you say “new site”, do you mean a wordpress.org blog site? I’m so confused : )

    Yes, that is what I mean.

    O.K., so if I download WordPress.org, I will be able to use the free auction plugin? In what way is the free version different then the others?
    I understand that I will need to find a hosting site and will most likely use one in your list. Do I set up that account first before downloading? And how difficult is it to set up and then install the auction plugin? I’m starting to think I need to find someone to help me do this.
    Thanks for your help : )

    Yes, you will be able to use the plugin IF you get hosting and set it up there. http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
