Hi (this is going to be a long one because I'm thoroughly confused),
I created my blog on WordPress.com. I also registered my domain name and paid for mapping all through WordPress.com. I learned from some other blogs that they use AWeber for their newsletters and webforms, so I paid for an account to utilize these items only to find out that WordPress.com doesn't allow webforms (nor plug-ins as I am finding out now).
So, I then paid more money to host my blog with BlueHost. I followed their directions regarding importing my blog and downloaded WordPress.org 3.1. When I go back to my blog (that I started on WordPress.com and I'm thinking is now self-hosted) I don't see a Plug-Ins option on my admin page, nor can I get the webform from AWeber to appear.
What I am doing missing now? Any help (step by step) will be so very much appreciated.
