Well after a tremendous first year at WordPress.com I have decided to take the plunge and move to WordPress.org! I feel like a kid learning to ride a bike!
My new address is:
I will be setting up the redirect here – so you won’t have to do a thing….
Thank you so much family, and Merry Christmas!

Can I just ask what are the advantages…..and costs? Curious
Sure. The best article I found was at:
I wanted more versatility in my ability to raise awareness and direct people to agencies that specialize in Domestic Violence help for victims. at .com we can’t do things like put in an Amazon widget for DV books, or music. Or promote a counselor, or whatever…
As far as costs…you have to pick a place to host your site – I used BlueHost. The cost varies depending on what you want and if you need to buy a domain name or not. I would plan on around $100 or more – you don’t get to pay month to month – one year up front. The software is free from WordPress.org – that gets installed on the BlueHost Server…kind of like a new file cabinet to put your files in.
Then, I am finding out some things are free for plugins and some cost money. For expample, here at WP.com our backups are free. I am still looking into which plug-in to use for backups. Manage-WP is free to start with, then Wp.org recommends VaultPress – I’ll have to check that out too.
I like the plug-ins feature, kind of a smorgasboard of tools in your bag – but wow, so many choices!
Thank you and Merry Christmas!
