Migrating to wordpress.com

Can I migrate my blogs to wordpress.com and save money? Here are my notes?


  1. WordPress.com and WordPress.org
  2. Moving from a Self-Hosted WordPress to WordPress.com
  3. Is WordPress Hosting Really That Important?
  4. How to Bulk Upload Files to the WordPress Media Library Using FTP

This is quite easy. The free version is of course burdened, but it has a lot of themes, but very few plugins. I wonder if I’ll miss them, and I’ll have to upgrade to avoid the adverts.

The code interpreter doesn’t work either. Maybe I should use images for the embedded tweets, but it’ll be a problem for the rss lists. Plugins need a business plan, which is more expensive. Also google tools are not available until business plan, which is over £20 p.m.

Here’s the link on their pricing, from free to £21 p.m.

  1. I came to the conclusion that losing the plugins was too high a price to pay for getting a cheap hosting service. Certainly, I couldn’t move the wiki there. I deleted the blog a couple of months ago.
