    I have a domain through name.com “brandweinmeadows.com and wordpress is my editor(?). Can I upgrade so I can have a custom heading and fonts? I sell USDA lamb in Portland, OR, and want a photo or some rendering of Mt. Hood for the picture on my home page. I don’t know how to do anything.

    http://www.brandweinmeadows.com/ isn’t a WordPress.COM blog but a WordPress.ORG blog, so you need to be over there for help with that. We’re using a different version of the software.

    It doesn’t seem like there is the flexibility to do all the things with wp.org that I see on wp.com. Is it because I don’t know what I’m doing or is there a way to make my brandwein.com “wannabe website” with wp.org more flexible? If wp.com IS more flexible, is there a way to change over to that? This blog I’m using as cooleyedbabe is not connected to my domain.
    E.g., I have a sheep farm, I want a picture of my farm as the heading, I want pages with sheep pictures, I want to change font styles, etc. Appreciate any help I can get. My web host is name.com. I use wordpress at their recommendation.

    Just the opposite.

    .org is far more flexible and with a lot less rules and conditions. But you DO need to have some basic knowledge.
