Read their terms; I doubt they exist to help people play SE spam.
Blog and forum spam is a pretty sad way to promote a site, and of very limited value, even if you 'get away with it'.
If you changed your approach from 'trying to look genuine' to putting effort into your own sites, then you are unlikely to be reported, and unlikely to see your 'proper' sites being banned.

[wordpress.com...] Read their highlighted section.
Was there any communication from Wordpress?

If you want to pass muster, then use minimal linkage to the site you are trying to promote, and create original, useful blog posts. Trying to keep 24 blogs going (or 48) with even marginally useful content will be a hugely time consuming task, and is probably one of the least effective ways to spend your available promotion hours. Running them as splogs will be easier, but is short-term and largely ineffective.
Doing a couple of GOOD blogs might give you some opportunities for linkage to and promotion of your commercial sites, but is still probably less effective than link development and content creation for the sites themselves.

Typical. No point in advice frankly - the attempt to create spam blogs is a mindset. Long term work is something that does not make sense to them at all, even if the benefits are obviously much more.
Sorry for being so negative. But I have a cousin whos tried every spam tactic in the book, failed in all, but still refuses to do something long term despite my best attempts to convince him -- even though I am a 100 times more successful than he is!

They don't learn. I know many spammers who go through hoops to deceive google for a week, rather than think long term; many are highly intelligent people, with internet skills I'd die for - and they spend all day shooting themselves in the foot.
I'm happy - it means my sites are denied terrifying competition ;)
But using blogs and forums is particularly sad, as it's really no mystery that such links have been severely downgraded.
Only a committed blogger, who wants 'quick fix' links that need not endure, will succeed these days; and that's a big group of serious bloggers; not a group of sad folk using the 'fastest turnover' bit of the interweb to promote a static spam site.
No blog-spammer has the incentive to keep up the forward momentum that a successful blog will always have. Stagnation is annihilation. Not a free link.

48 blogs + 24 websites = 20 minutes/day available for each max, that is assuming you've figured out how not to sleep... ever. Your competition has you covered and your blog hosts can spot the quality issues too.
Try cutting down to 2.4 websites and you'll be ok, wait... thats 2.4 kids to be the average... how many websites is a handful anyway?
