There isn't an export settings option for WP.com like the export posts
options, so the settings would need to be set manually on a server of our
own.  They were 3 major tasks;

1. Set up email blogging :: This was handled straight out of the WP.com
interface, I anticipate this will be a different kind of animal on a private
2. New Banner / Theming :: This was not changed by myself but I am certain
this can happen through the admin settings without too much trouble.
3. Spanish as the default language :: earlier I learned that the feature I
utilized to easily change the site's default lang. from English to Spanish
is only available in WP.com - new solution will likely be a multilingual
Plugin we install on the SL.org server.

I am free to tinker tonight, are we moving on the VC.SL.org server now or
sticking to the VC.WP.com blog?
