What do you need help with?

wordpress.com is free and WordPress hosts's the blog and therefore you have a domain.wordpress.com URL format. You can purchase a domain name and redirect the WordPress URL to your custom domain but..

You are limited on what you can do with theme and cool features you would get with a self hosted blog.

You can get a free domain on freenom.com, or just search on google for free domains, than use 000webhost, hosting or any free hosting (there are plenty of them) and install WordPress via softcalus

Temolad,

I would suggest you get cheap hosting service instead of free WordPress hosting. Even Hostgator, BlueHost, and A Small Orange hosting services have less pricing plans. I have been blogging since 2012 with the WordPress CMS and hence I would say that it is an amazing publishing medium.

Temolad,

You may go with Bluehost, shared hosting plan which would cost you $4-$5 per month.

However, you can get the grand deal (Up to 80%) off during Black Friday Deals 2016 by next month.

Temolad, you are welcome. Try to get the fast loading premium WordPress theme like MyThemeShop as the loading page of the site is a Google ranking factor. The MTS themes are quick loading and cheap as well ($9)
