I want to start a blog site with a custom domain, in support of my business. I suspect that I may want to be able to place ads at some point, and in that case, I know (I think) that I need to run WordPress on a server, rather than simply start a blog at WordPress.com.
Still, that aside (maybe I won't run ads), for starting up a basic, attractive blog, with typical (whatever they are) features, is running my own site essentially going to be as easy as setting one up at wp.com?
I'm definitely more an end user than a tech oriented/experience guy, so I won't want to get too deeply into needing to do customization that requires a lot more than dealing with standard menu selections. (I DO maintain my own business site with Frontpage, so I can at least do that much.)
Thanks for any direction or encouragement you can give.
