    Is there any problem(s) transferring from a Free wordpress.com blog to a webhost. I want to start with the free version of WordPress.com & then eventually transfer to a webhost (i.e bluehost.com)

    Thanks to all who respond!

    Move from wordpress.com to wordpress.org self-hosted blog, and assuming you have a registered domain:

    1. Get a hosting account and ask them for the correct name server info
    2. Visit your domain registrar and point your domain's name server to your host
    3. Wait for your domain to resolve properly (2 to 48 hours)
    4. Install WordPress at your domain (see Installing WordPress)
    5. At your wordpress.COM blog do Administration > Tools > Export
    6 At your domain's newly installed WordPress do Administration > Tools > Import->WordPress using file from step 5
