    Nice article amandeep :D. It’s been a long time. I didn’t know about self-hosted wordpress until I read your article here. Looks like I’m going to make a new blog. It is true, Google’s T&C will limit you and it would be hard to keep track of what you’ve done in your blog and knowing that it does not violate the T&C or not. Thanks for the great article . 😀
