    One way I can think of would be to put the pilot para and the main post on two seperate divs. Give a link like "Read more". In the onclick of the link, toggle the "display" style attribute of the main content from "none" to "block".
    This method is good only for relatively medium sized posts.

    They are different. A blog is usually of an individual while website can be of an individual, a company, etc. The content in website is more diverse compared to blogs. Blogs are basically personal opinions and websites can be of different subject.

    To display posts related to specific categories on home page, you will have to edit the PHP code and modify the sql queries but it wont be possible with wordpress.com

    Datacounter script can be downloaded from various free stats site but again wordpress.com wont allow it...

    To display cat and archive on top you need to edit sidebar.php and again i wont be possible with wordpress.com

    Regards,
    Deep

    Yes Blogs can be started for free!

    Try these sites for setting up free blogs:

    www.blogger.com - best, allows template editing, great features, misses category feature which can be enabled using some tweaks.

    www.wordpress.com - very user friendly and easy to use, great themes to select from, disallows themes editing, plugins and your own ads

    Use Wordpress software on your own webhosting or server from Wordpress.org - best option - all features available, very flexible and powerful.

    WordPress is better .. Cauz you can have spam filtering plugins and better comment management ...

    Btw .. You can also use tag if you dont use that rich text editor .. I use w.Bloggar for my posts .. :D
