    Hello!
    I am little confused here so some explanation would be much appriciated.
    I ve been using blogger for less than a year and have a blog that generatres around 1$/day, all white had.
    Now I ve read an article about WP and autoblogs,the author is ernesthemigway i belive.
    I ve registered on wordpress site and recive a blog with hosting.
    Now I wonder whats the main difference between their hosting and your paid hosting on other sites?
    Am I somehow limited with their hosting ?

    Replys much appriciated.

    Best

    yes you can't install plugins, to help you with general running of your blog, there are a lot of white hat plug ins you can use, to help keep it up and running, and help with spam, and seo and stuff.

    On Wordpress site you can't install plugins, only paid users can do that.
    I suggest you to run it on your hosting because you'll have full access to your blog, you can install any plugins and themes :)

    Furthermore the domain mame looks more official and professional without the " .wordpress". So user will be more keen to click on your website.
