It's a nice enough blog.

What are you trying to do with it? Make money? Make friends? Waste your time?

well..im looking to just have something fun to pass the time and maybe make some some sort of money while doing so. i spend most of my day on the computer, so why not make money off of it..

i was thinking maybe in a few weeks, i may have enough content to start using adsense or something. i havent researched it just yet.

Nice! I like your blog... and if you see the blogs provided by WP have the URL like http://username.wordpress.com

Is there any way by which we can have it as http://username.com ? I mean with out that the word wordpress in the URL. The same thing happens with blogger also... like they have .blogspot in their URL. By the way, what is this process called as? Is it the URL redirection? or some other thing? Sorry for being silly but i dont know

And after or before having http://username.com url ... Is there any way by which we can have a "Sign up and login" system for our own blog? so that only those who have registered with my blog can reply on my comments??? This will help in avoiding some non-sense spam on comments, i feel.

As I said, i am a newbie to this whole blogging thing, but from what i have read, you can download WP software and uploaded on your server. All you need to do is buy the domain and you can do that almost anywhere on the net.

as for the log in, through wordpress, there is a box you can check in the options menu that reads "Users must be registered and logged in to comment." Check that box and i think you are all good

anyone, please correct me if i am wrong.
