I just upgraded a friend’s WordPress.com blog to a year of the “premium” bundle.
This was made possible by my already being an admin on the site. It occurred to me at the time that it seemed like there were two things missing:
- The ability to arbitrarily “gift” premium to someone
- Ability to pay with Amazon payments
OK, so maybe that second one is a bit of a way off. I was totally sold on Amazon payments after using it just one time. It’s way easier than Paypal. I digress.
I’ve decided the next-generation annual Reader’s Digest subscription is the yearly premium @wordpressdotcom upgrade. Needs a giftcard option

I sort of view the “giving” of this upgrade as the next-generation version of giving the annual Reader’s Digest subscription. Almost a yearly “Blogger’s Digest” subscription.
Something for WordPress.com to think about.
