Rel=canonical and WordPress

You have two sites - site1.com and site2.com. Site1 has been around for years, and you've merged it with another site to become site2.com. Site1.com has accumulated years worth of links, backlinks, domain authority, and so on - and you want to pass that one to site2.com in the best way possible. More inside, naturally. [more inside]

Is it worthwhile registering/adding a domain name to my Wordpress blog?

I've been publishing a blog for a couple of years on Wordpress. Whenever I log into the dashboard, I'm informed that my domain "is available to be registered and added to your blog. (You can use it as your blog address.)" support page on domains is here. Are there any drawbacks to registering it? Will all the widgets work the same way? Will my SEO be effected? Will my wordpress followers still be subscribed? What else should I consider? It's a small blog updated with a couple lengthy posts each week; about 300 subscribers and 500 page views per day.

What are best practices for changing the directory of a Wordpress blog?
