WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org
WordPress.com is a hosting platform that makes it easy for anyone to publish online. You don’t have to download software, pay for hosting, or manage a web server. WordPress.com has hundreds of themes, and includes the functionality of many plugins, but you can’t upload your own plugins or themes.
WordPress.org offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database.

I also like the thought that you are our Happiness Gardener. We plant thoughts --- nourish thoughts --- watch them blossom and produce fruit --- and get to rest after the harvest to enjoy it all. That work takes care and expertise as we seek to produce what is pleasant, downright good, beneficial, and beautiful. Thank you and all of WordPress for all that you do. Here's wishing you a great day!— Margaret
