Why you may wish to transfer, if not to a KCL site:
If you use WordPress.com you’ll be good for a bit. You may get frustrated later if you wish to:
add Google ads
add plugins to go beyond the functionality their platform provides.
Later, to have full control, you may wish to move to a self-hosted WordPress. This is a lot like buying your own house: it’s all on you from now on. This talk is about how to set up your own first place, so we look at hosted versions, either on WordPress.com or KCL; it would be a bigger leap to go from zero to self-hosting.
