paid plans & mapping domain
Do I have to have the Premium plan to map a GoDaddy-purchased domain to a WP site, or can I go with the Personal plan?
The blog I need help with is doggiebiscottidotdog.wordpress.com.
It depends on exactly which features you want to have. We have different plans: free, personal, premium and business. All hosting is free regardless of which plan you choose. You can view all wp plan features here https://wordpress.com/pricing/ Add a plan for your site here: http://store.wordpress.com/plans/.
re: purchasing upgrades
WordPress.com provides free blogs and hosts them free of charge. There are no bandwidth charges. All WordPress.com blogs come with 3000 megabytes (~3 GBs) of space for storing uploaded files and images. Free features are listed here https://en.wordpress.com/features/
There are no monthly payment plans and no bulk deal upgrades. We are billed annually. Also note that purchase orders are not accepted. We must pay for all upgrades in full at the time of purchase.
Make sure you read the comparison very closely do you know exactly what the restrictions and limitations on WordPress.COM blogging are: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

WordPress.com does not provide an email service for blogs on their sub domains or on custom domains. Please see these support docs
What domain mapping does is providing a seamless redirect to the very same content under the new domain URL when a person clicks the old URL .wordpress.com to the original content. It can take up to 72 hours for domain propagation to take place throughout the internet but it doesn’t usually take that long. https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/
