Author Posts January 1, 2013 at 9:08 am #1110917 stilettostewMember I am very new to wordpress and just discovered that I cannot use plugins with a wordpress.com domain name which i already paid for. So, i would like to switch to a wordpress.org domain name to use plugins but keep all my content. How do I do this? The blog I need help with is magthoughts.wordpress.com.

Export your existing content, buy paid hosting, install software from WordPress.org, and Import the content. Carry on from there.
