    You shift to wordpress.org and host your own blog. Read the support documents for more.

    You can get buy the domain name and get the domain mapping here (both are offered for $14.97 per year): http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/

    On the background, depending on the theme you are using, there might be a “trick” that can be used via some inline CSS in a text widget, but with some themes the only way to do it is with the paid CSS upgrade.

    It works on my end of the Internet. It can take a while for the name to make its way around the Internet.

    You can change the theme at Appearance > Themes in your dashboard. Changing the background, fonts or other styling not included in the theme options will require the CSS Upgrade and extensive knowlegde of CSS.

    And, just a FYI kinda thing, even though you’ve mapped your WordPress.com blog to your own domain, you’re still bound by the WordPress.com ToS.

    Then, as husdal said, the CSS upgrade it is. http://support.wordpress.com/custom-css/

    What URL did you use for the feed? Also, is your Flickr account set to Private?

    You had to put the RSS into the Flickr widget into the first place; what did you put there?

    What is the link to your Flickr stream? The widget won’t work until you put the correct information in there.

    jabraun – just goto your Flickr page, scroll all the way doan, and copy the link that reads ‘Latest’, then add that link to the Flickr widget :)
