We also received many questions about dropping .blogspot from our domain name...
How did we do it, was it easy?
After hours and hours of searching the web and endless youtube videos on how to do it, we came across the perfect blog post from Somewhat Simple with a very easy to follow, step-by-step process with a screen-shot each step of the way.
After we purchased our domain name from GoDaddy (you can use whomever you want) the process was super simple and we were done in less than an hour with all of our old links being redirected to our new domain. All that was left to do was change our links for our social media pages and groups that we belong to.
What are the benefits?
It's shorter, easier to remember and it just looks a whole lot simpler!
Are there any disadvantages?
We haven't run into any problems but you may lose your Alexa and Page rank.
Hope this was helpful!
