I decided to move my blogs to WordPress.com. With this hosting, I wont need to manage any upgrades to the software, but I can let WordPress.com manage the bandwidth and server load. The transfer to WordPress.com went smoothly, and I paid the $12 to allow a custom domain to be used.
When transitioning from WordPress.org, there are some differences that I met:
- You can't install arbitrary templates or plugins
- If you have multiple blogs associated with your WordPress.com account, you can't have different display names for your posts on each accounts. (You could probably create multiple WordPress.com accounts.)
- It seems like WordPress.com strips the html that can be used in the text widget.
