    Should I use wordpress.com or wordpress.org for websites for future freelance work? I'm new to the whole thing, but I do have my own blog that I made with wordpress.com... just don't know about a real website, and don't know if I should go premium with wordpress.com or learn to do everything manually with wordpress.org. Please excuse me if this is a naïve question.... I am a newbie and is trying to get hip to everything. Thanks. School me.

    For the price of one year of "Premium" on Wordpress.com you'll get a bunch of domains and a shared hosting for a bunch of wordpress.org blogs. The choice is yours...

    WordPress.org is obviously way more flexible than .com
    Learn to build a self hosted, its better imo.

    If you have money to buy a host Wp.org is the best one :)

    I would go for Wordpress.org, You would have to get your own domains and hosting but you would have full access on them.
    For a wordpress.com you will always be limited when installing templates, plugins, etc.

    You need control over your websites and/or business.

    exactly.
    a free blog from wordpress.com can get banned at anytime.
