I had to buy a new domain with Hostgator because I accidentally let my domain expire.  I have been trying to get the old domain to point to the new and have been having so much trouble!  I've been working on it for a week!  I used godaddy  last year and someone suggested Hostgator.  For some reason blogger told me I have to buy webhosting from someone else, so I bought it from Hostgator.  I don't understand why I would have to do this when blogger is free.  Any ideas?  My new domain name is still pointing to hostgator.  I wish blogger had a phone number.  Their helper section is not helpful.

Go to your Blogger dashboard and then click "settings".  Look under the publishing heading and you will see a place for you enter your own domain name.  For further setting instructions looks for this phrase "Your domain must be properly registered first. cindy@cindybuccieri.com
