Self-Hosted Crossover on WordPress Blog

Need The Easiest Way To Self-Host WordPress Blog?

I changed my Twitter Profile this morning to: Texas gal into Media Marketing Strategy & Coaching, Web Design SEO, Real Estate, Golf, Pottery & Heart Disease. Internet Marketer and wannabe Blogger.

Let’s talk about the wannabe Blogger description. When Yarby’s Corner began, I shared that I had started a Blog years ago and then took a 5 year hiatus. This time I am determined to stick with it and find my blogging voice. So far, I stand by that. But because I was testing the waters initially, I used a wordpress.com address instead of my primary business website, The Media Mix. After several months of blogging and much reading, it appears there are a “few” plug-ins I need that are not available in this platform.

Best Method to Switch to Self Hosted WordPress Blog?

Confused ... Which way to go?

Don’t get me wrong, I love WordPress.com. But as a Business Blog I need to make a change. I help clients and readers with all forms of media : from traditional off-line media to new media and all aspects of on-line marketing. So my goal is to build a community that is interactive, engaging and fluid. I don’t want to talk “at” you but “with” you. Many of the folks reading my blog care A LOT about incoming-links, solid anchor text and showing their latest Blog Post when they Comment. I too appreciate those features on other Internet Marketing and Social Media Blogs.

It seems some of the Plug-Ins necessary to achieve my goal include: Twitter Tweet Button with Comment Box, Facebook Plug-In with auto identifer of posters and CommentLuv with link to last blog post. These and many more useful Plug-Ins are available with WordPress.org on a self-hosted Blog.

I want to confirm 2 things: 1) these features cannot be added to WordPress.com and 2) while www.yarby.wordpress.com is free … I must pay an annual fee to re-direct the current blog to my self-hosted address www.TheMediaMix.com/Blog . I could begin again but, with the power of a WordPress Blog, I have excellent search engine results all pointing to this URL.

So, I merged my blog with my main website www.TheMediaMix.com /Blog; imported all the wordpress.com posts & comments and we’re good to go.
