In January 2007, many high-profile search engine optimization (SEO) blogs, as well as many low-profile commercial blogs featuring AdSense, were targeted and attacked with a WordPress exploit.[90] A separate vulnerability on one of the project site's web servers allowed an attacker to introduce exploitable code in the form of a back door to some downloads of WordPress 2.1.1. The 2.1.2 release addressed this issue; an advisory released at the time advised all users to upgrade immediately.[91]
Registration is not required to read or comment on blogs hosted on the site, except if chosen by the blog owner. Registration is required to own, or post in, a weblog. All the basic and original features of the site are free-to-use. However, some features are not available in the free plan: install PHP plugins, customize theme CSS, write JavaScript, domain mapping, domain registration, removal of ads, website redirection, video upload, storage upgrades...[10]
Each theme developer has a different support system in place. Some has public support forums, some private ones, some does email support or combination of all. Support forum is one of the best solutions because you can search for solutions on your own and in most cases you won’t even need to ask a question as it might be already answered for you. Therefore, you would save a lot of time waiting for support team to respond on your request.

If any issues arise, do not hesitate to contact the support staff. Also, if you wish to research this theme and its features, you can always access the extensive documentation source. It is informative, and very well-written. Every option and setting will be accessible, as there is no need to modify the code. With The Reader, even a child can create a successful site.
If you use Google Sheets for content you want to communicate to site followers, such as results from a web form, try this timesaving Google Sheets WordPress integration. It will automatically create a new WordPress post every time a new row is added to a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Also great for collaboration visibility when the spreadsheet is editable by multiple people!

Thank you for your reply 🙂 I am certainly willing to make the switch to .org and self-hosting, but I am not sure how to go about self-hosting. I purchase my domain name (ashlimontgomery.com) from DirectNic which might have a hosting option. And that’s about the extent of my knowledge or understanding of self-hosting. Where do I go to begin that process? If I get that figured out, which themes would you recommend for me? I really would like to take my blogging a step up, and I know that a really professional look that puts the content into a more user-friendly format is important to achieve that goal.
