    When I log in to WordPress and go to my Dashboard, I always see this offer to upgrade to my own domain for $18 per year. Will upgrading allow me to monetize my site and put whatever kind of content I want on it (ads, banners, etc.)? Basically I would like to use my site to make money, especially with my Beachbody business, but right now I am not even allowed to put my Beachbody Coach website in my blogs as a link. Is the upgrade worth it?

    No it will not as no blogger iniataed advertsising is allowed on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Please see here for clarity > Domains – Important Notes Before Upgrading
    For monetizing your blog see WordAds.
