Hello! A pal of mine is thinking of starting a blog so I sent him to WordPress. I suggested that he go with a WordPress.com blog, register his domain name of choice and then if later he wants to forward his .com blog to the domain name he could. OR he could download the WordPress.org stuff and move his blog over.
Is this good advice? Is it possible to forward a WordPress.com blog to a hosted domain (or is is vice versa)? Is it easy to move data from WordPress.com to your own domain? (I see advice for moving files from all sorts of other blogging sites, so I assume that from WordPress would be a snap!)
Thanks much. I hate to get him started on the wrong foot.
