    Before my first posts I’d like to make sure that one day I could seamlessly and smoothly export all my blog content without damage onto either self-hosted site or somewhere else like blogspot.com. If that’s feasible, it’ll be great !

    The blog I need help with is magicznagdynia.wordpress.com.

    Fine, so I can export my blog but if I want to preserve my photo and other media untouched, it’s suggested that ONLY the newest wordpress.org can handle it…. A bit risky….

    Not accurate. You can use any version of WP.org software you like, but older versions are insecure.

    So, with the recent WP.org updates I can sit back and start blogging with WP.com and anytime I feel like moving to the self-hosted version, I can transfer my blog structure and content, together with undamaged media safely. Do I get things right ? :)

    Yes. When you do decide to move your content this is what the DIY move consists of http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/08/31/moving-your-blog-from-wordpress-com-to-wordpress-org-resources-and-tips/

    Mostly right

    Content yes – (not sure that unattached media (pictures etc) that are not used in a Post or Page will also transfer so you might need to move some things manually – all of your Posts and Pages will transfer just fine

    structure maybe – depends on the Theme and if it is available outside WordPress.COM – themes here are modified here and you have a lot of Widgets here and no Plug-in’s

    Note that the themes and any customization you may have done, are NOT portable, although many themes have WP.org versions available.
