The Internet has made it possible for anyone to publish content to a worldwide audience and blogging has become the new national pastime no matter where you reside. Some get paid to blog and others pay for the privilege of blogging on a particular site or with particular software.
WordPress.org and wordpress.com software are different and offer two wordpress alternatives to bloggers. Many wordpress.com bloggers begin blogging on the free hosted platform and some eventually move off to self hosting their own wordpress.org software on their own domains. I have discovered a set of excellent video tutorials that I would like to recommend to bloggers who are making that move.
