Why I Think WordPress.com Made a Mistake with the Starter Plan — Mental Health @ Home

–snip–

I get that WP decided it was time to increase prices. Of course people paying for services aren’t going to like it, but it’s the way of the world that prices go up (although for people like me who were on the Business plan and could now downgrade to the Pro plan, there was actually a substantial cost savings). I doubt that WordPress.com is generating enough revenue from ads to fully cover the cost of hosting so many free blogs, so I suspect they might be taking a bit of a loss on free sites in order to draw in more people who will become paying customers. However, I think these recent changes will actually reduce the number of people who will become paying customers, which is why I think WP.com is shooting themselves in the foot.

Nice to see they offered a $5 plan.
