I have a blog on wordpress.com and now want to start another one on .org. This because I really like wordpress and the possibilities, but want to make a more professional blog. But just to be safe, I want to check if, and how, I can do the following with wordpress.org.
-run banners/ads from paying clients on various spots on the blog.
-Not have ads shown that WordPress choooses, but rather only ads I sell myself
-add a simple webshop with affiliate links (resell by linking through to other sites when people purchase through my site)
-choose own url, so not show nameofsite.wordpress.org but rather nameofsite.com
I basically want to create a blog about home deco, living, architecture, design etc. and intergrate this with my work as a PR consultant for home deco and living brands. I will write paid content, but also content about what I like, see, and find. Everynow and then I'll run banner ads or other ads from brands.
I hope you guys can give me advice on wether or not wordpress.org is the tool for me.
