Question: My question concerns SEO for WordPress websites vs. free WordPress blogs.
Answer: WordPress.com hosts free blogs; you can also use WordPress as a plug-in to run your own blog, on your own site (WordPress.org has the free software). In a perfect world, you want your blog on your OWN site, not on WordPress.com. But a blog is better than nothing.
I recommend hosting your blog on your own domain in the format of http://www.jm-seo.net/blog rather than a subdomain (blog.jm-seo.net). The former is better for link juice purposes.
