The choice to buy a custom domain name
But I have a URL, it's
afterbedtimeblog.blogspot(dot)com. Why the heck should I pay for a domain name and yearly registration, when I'm getting it for free from Blogger? What are you trying to do V? Make money from an affiliate link? Do I look like I have money to burn? DO I look like I come here for you to sell me crap?
Well, here's a couple of reasons.
afterbedtimeblog(dot)com sounds a heck of a lot cooler than afterbedtimeblog.blogspot(dot)com. Your traffic stats, is your traffic, not Blogger's and will travel with you if you leave Blogger.
Having your own URL adds professionalism to your site.
Registering your URL encourages commitment to your blog by nudging you to be committed because you've invested money in it.
