How to Make Your Blog Mobile-Friendly

The Difference Between Running Your Blog On WordPress.com & WordPress.org
I think stating the disadvantages of both will help us to choose better so here they are:

WordPress.com Disadvantages
Limited choice of themes, plugins, and settings.
You can’t make any money through advertising.
Custom domain costs $25/year and is essential for future proofing.
No control over anything.

WordPress.org Disadvantages
Heightened security risks from malicious themes, plugins and core hacks.
No one will help you if things go wrong.
Depending on your hosting, costs may be on you when additional bandwidth is needed.
Slower at the cheap end; you need to expend effort and money for a fast self-hosted site.
