I dreamed of having a Self-hosted WordPress Blog and so I have it now.
This is my new and main blog : http://geekfume.com/
My journey with WordPress.com was very short and not much enjoyful! But really, the community was great. It is not that a standalone blog does not have to community. Just the fact is that we have to work much harder there to build one. If you are a beginner, then its an awful choice. But if you have that motivation and willingness then nothing can stop you. :D
Not much to say though. But these are my last words to WordPress.com. :(
May GeekFume impress you when it will have much contents…Byeeeee…. Will miss WordPress.com Forums…
