After starting working at Automattic, I was surprised just at how little we advertise WordPress.com. Sure, we power ~24% of the sites, across WordPress.com and WordPress.org software. Yep, a quarter of all the sites available are currently run by some version of WordPress. However, after trying to simply Google “Why should I use WordPress.com”, or “Why should you use WordPress.com”, or “Benefits of using WordPress.com”, I was surprised to find out that neither of those answer the right question.

* Why you should use WordPress.org plugins.

* Differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com

* Random pages from WordPress.com support forums.

This sucked to find out. I’ve been working with WordPress.com for the past couple of months, and in all honesty, it could probably be ideal for 70% of all the people who are looking to build a site. The rest might benefit more…
