    Good afternoon all,
    I have just a few questions.

    I have a niche I want to go after, not sure if it will produce as big as I like, so want to start a bit smaller to test.

    Do you recommend
    1) Using WP with your own domain name? or
    2) Using just WP without your own domain-- I.e. wordpress.com/XXXXXX

    Also, do you recommend staying with .com or will any other address endings work?

    If you just want to test it I would use a blogger blog where you can easily ad adsense to it if you want. I think blogger blogs are a good place to market test. If this is something you are wanting to build a big project of, I would use your own domain so you have the control. As far as domains. If you are going to be making a flagship blog, I would use a .com if it is just going to be a small niche site I would use a .info

    I like to test a niche with squidoo.
