    I have this blog account on WordPress.com and it’s the one where I didn’t need to download any WordPress software on my computer to set up a blog. I just created my blog on WordPress.com site directly. Now, I discovered this software called WordPress 3.0.4 available for download on WordPress.org, with many extra features, options and plugins. My question is : Can I upgrade my current WordPress.com blog to this WordPress 3.0.4 version ? And if yes, will that affect my blog entries ? Lets say I download that software and click install. What will happen ? Will it upgrade my current WordPress.com blog page or not ? So what I’m actually asking is if I install that software, next time I go to my Dashboard will it be that of WordPress 3.0.4 with all the new features ?
    I found an article on Google saying that a blog back-up is recommended first, before any upgrade but the instructions on how to do it, said something about the Plugin menu in Dashboard. Well, here is the problem…I don’t have a Plugin menu in my Dashboard.
    If anybody could illuminate me on this issue I would be very grateful. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is babybubu.wordpress.com.

    You misunderstand the situation. WordPress.com and WordPress.ORG are completely separate. The version of wordpress running here is the most current version. Please read this very carefully > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
