    Yes, I love wordpress. The .org version is the way to go. The .com version is really a waste of time and will cost you more later to convert. I’d rather have a higher ramp up and more professional looking site that converts better.

      Hi again, Rich. Thanks for always reading my articles and leaving a comment. You’re awesome! And I totally agree. WordPress.com would probably be a good practice ground for total beginners. But for professional goals, WordPress.org is the only right choice.

      Cheers,

      Kevin

    Great & Worth Appreciating Post Kevin!
    I like WordPress (org) and Bluehost the most to get started with and my suggestion to my fellow bloggers and blog readers would be the same!

    Worth Appreciate!

    Hi Kevin,

    It’s so easy for new bloggers to get the 2 versions confused. I still speak to people who don’t understand which version of WordPress they’re using.

    I personally prefer to use the WordPress.org version. Like you said, if you’re trying to build a business and monetize your blog, then that’s the best way to go.

    Plus, you get so many options when it comes to customizing and using plugins and themes.

    It does come with a little bit of a learning curve, but in my opinion, it’s definitely worth it.

    Thanks for sharing these tips.

    Have a great day 🙂

    Susan

    Hi Kevin,

    I do believe that WordPress.com is great for those who want to write a journal for themselves and things like that.
    But if someone wants to use WordPress as part of their business plan, .org is a must. With all the plugins available, it makes things so easy for us.
    If we every want to monetize our blog WP.org is the way!

    For bloggers out there who are using wordpress.com if you want to make a professional website,blog or weblog, i suggest you choose a self hosted wordpress.org because you have fully control of the customization and it is very affordable compare to wordpress.com

    Awesome informative article. Although WordPress.com is free there are many drawbacks that should be taken into consideration such as the lack of SEO. One of the reasons I prefer WordPress.org is the unlimited SEO features as you said. Great job Kevin!

    Wow! Great post. Learned a lot about WordPress.com and WordPres.org. I prefer wordpress.org because of plugins. It has many plugins to help in every work. And it has no lack of seo features. Thanks Kevin.

    Nice review Kevin. If you are a newbie with a tiny interest in blogging, go with .com 😉 If you are a newbie with a little more than a tiny interest in blogging, go with .org. Only because the .com crowd soon learns that if they want to grow anything with their blog – readers, traffic, etc – .org is the only option, for about 1,000 reasons. Thanks for sharing the benefits of each platform.

    Hey Kevin,

    That’s a nice comparison of the two great platforms. Both have their share of pluses and minuses.

    I believe one can use the .com for personal journaling of sorts and the .org for professional/business websites.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers,
    Jane.

    Hi Kevin,
    I enjoyed reading your article my question is simply what is a newbie to do?
    do to unfortunate circumstances I had to leave all the jobs I knew behind, then thought I could use all these experiences and start a new career in writing.I know enough about computers to get in trouble what should I do?

    I started my blogging with WordPress.Com later when the site started hitting traffic, I just moved to WordPress CMS for better monetization.

    One thing I noticed, WordPress CMS is still open source offering a variety of features and makes continuous new features like Gutenberg etc
