You Still Don’t Have a Domain For Your Blog?
I have always been preaching folks to move to their own domain name. Having a secondary domain (like yourname.blogspot.com) is amateurish. I’m going to get a ton of brickbats for saying this, but I’ll stick to my words.
If you are a blogspot user, you really have no more reasons to shirk this. Did you know that you can have your own custom domain for you blog! And what’s the best part? The hosting is free. Just like blogspot but now with your own domain. That’s awesome. Take it from a man who is paying for his hosting. When you get to have it hosted for free on Google’s own server, just jump for it.
