I've been thinking to publish my works for some time now, but remembering I'm practically stranded on a third-world country, I think publishing physically (in English) won't be too probable.
So, I decided that I will use online publishing.
No, I'm not talking about Amazon's FreeSpace or something like that, just a site that's nice enough to host my content and keeps the content mine
I considered WordPress for hosting my original work (and fanfics), but then this comes up in their Terms of Service:
By submitting Content to Automattic for inclusion on your Website, you grant Automattic a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your blog. If you delete Content, Automattic will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Can someone clarify what this actually mean? Does submitting my story to such sites equals losing my right to publish it physically in the future?
