    Hi:

    I started mspfairskies.com and would like to add a petition with the capabilities like SpeakUp! which is only for .org sites. Do you know of a widget for .com sites? If not, is there an easy way to change from .org .com?

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is mspfairskies.com.

    There is no such widget currently available on the free-hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    For others interested in that plugin available only for wp.ORG, here is some info:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/speakup-email-petitions/

    We cannot use plugins here:

    To move to wp.ORG you must have a domain name (which you buy) and a host for your site (Netscape Solutions, godaddy, or a multitude of other choices), and software to make your site function (which could be the free software from wp.ORG) .

    If you have a blog here on wp.COM then it is not difficult to export your wp.com site to wp.org:

    Here are a few details about the differences between wp.com and wp.org:

    Can you set up a petition on some type of petition site then link to it from your blog? Would that be OK?

    Yes, I could use another petition site and link to that site from my blog, but I want to control the petitioner emails and you cannot do that with sites like change.org.

    Thanks. I will try the .org route.

    Whether you move to wp.ORG or not, IMO, you should make it clear that your site is about Minneapolis / St. Paul: msp is not very descriptive nor SEO useful.
