I searched your themes and could not find one that met my needs. I want a blog presence but also the ability to feature products that I would like to sell. I found a theme titled “Seed” at the following link that I believe will met my need http://organicthemes.com/demo/seed/
It is supposed to be wordpress compatible but only for the wordpress.org community. I am not sure what that means.
In any case, am I overlooking a theme on the wordpress theme list that would meet my needs as this one will? I would rather work directly with an already approved wordpress theme.
The blog I need help with is workplacereliability.wordpress.com.

You are not allowed to sell any product you do not personally create or any service you do not personally provide. If retailing or reselling stuff you do no make that’s your thing hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/

Maybe I was not clear. I do have a business and of course I plan to sell only the products and services that are mine. I am just getting started with wordpress and am searching templates to use. I want a blog presence but want functionality on the blog that will allow the reader to jump over to my products and services and then provide them the ability to purchase and such. The link I provided earlier contains a blog / business template that seems to meet my needs. So, I am simply asking someone here that is familiar with wordpress themes to look at this link and then tell me which wordpress theme located on the wordpress site they think comes close to matching the one shown at the link.http://organicthemes.com/demo/seed/

re: the theme
You cannot import a theme. We do not have FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we not able to upload any third party themes.
The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/
There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated clearly here > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
I believe that my account is not free as I am using WordPress preferred bluhost vendor (paying annual fees) AND I do not mind using a paid them from the WordPress library.

That means you are posting to the wrong support forum. We do not provide support for WordPress.org installs here. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.com blogs here and no others.
WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and have separate logins. If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
