I have built a website on Wordpress, although I will have to pay about $18 to get and use a domain name without the "wordpress.com" in it. I don't need anything equipped for business transactions and high volume traffic--just a very basic promotional tool. Is this $18 Wordpress upgrade a good option?
Thanks for any feedback

I do snatch pulls in the gym so I can do snatch pulls in the bars. And I ALWAYS use a hook grip.

If this is just a basic blog for clients to read, then you might get away with the Wordpress free service.

Thanks, SFT! I will start looking into some of the hosting services in order to plan out a good website to upgrade to it. So far this is what I have developed on Wordpress :
I plan to change a few things, but this is a rough draft so far. Any thoughts on specific things I might want to change? Thanks.

Looks like a good start. I'd probably connect the link bar and body of the page. The black gap in between looks a little bit weird to me, but we may have different tastes.
Also, remember that you can change your landing page to be a static page, rather than the blog. I'm sure you will be changing content, but you currently have content on the blog that would be more appropriate as a page. That way you get rid of the dates, etc. I would also disable comments for main pages of the site such as about me, services, etc.

is it wordpress.com or wordpress.org ? I diff is that you buy your website name from a hosting company and download wordpress onto the site with a button that is inside the control panel (Cpanel) of the site. Its easy. Here is my step by step tutorial on how to make a wordpress website
I recommend this way over the other way but If you do it your way I would pay to take "wordpress.com" out of your website domain name. the bigger the website name, the more changes people misspell it. Make sure your website name has some key words in it to help search engines find it faster. See my post on how to pick a good website name.
I hope this helps and good luck with your website!!
