NEW: If you want to buy a domain and have it hosted… you can get it here for a great price: www.daisydomains.com. Get a domain name, then choose the WordPress hosting. That’s all you really need. Sadly, we’ve recently learned that many of the free blogging sites will not let you have a “networking” business. If you pay for hosting yourself, though… then you make your own rules!
