Just noticed that WordPress now offers a third upgrade option, called “Personal”.
It’s very basic, but alright I guess, if you just want a domain name and to get rid of the ads. There’s also, what they call, “basic” customization, and it’s really basic. You can change colours and backgrounds and fonts … no CSS-editing here.
It’s probably a good move on their part, though, to offer one more option to the price of US$ 5,99 a month.
