So I’ve decided to make the move to WordPress.org using a self-hosted site. The URL should remain www.calliopespen.com and SUPPOSEDLY it will be a seamless transition. Hmmmm. Sounds too easy to me…
If I disappear from blogland for a while, it means I’m lost in cyberspace. Wish me luck!
UPDATE! Lesson #1: DO NOT CHANGE NAMESERVERS UNTIL YOUR SITE IS LIVE EVEN IF TECH SUPPORT SAYS IT’S OK.
Update your links to calliopespen.wordpress .com for now….stay tuned:)

I own a domain name and have been kicking around the idea of hosting my blog there. What are the advantages of doing this? I like the fact that WordPress has a tag surfer and can drive traffic to my blog via tags. I assume I would lose that benefit if I hosted on my domain.
I am also wondering if there are any free/low cost web hosting services out there that offer customizable templates.
Any insight/feedback into this issue?
Thanks friends. Appreciate your assistance!
