This is my 101th post! Woohoo! I figured a good post for my number 101 would be one to help other bloggers to make their blog a little bit better. I am pretty sure that doing this one simple thing has helped my blog more than any other one thing I could do.
In life, you hear all the time the phrase “first impressions are everything”. When it comes blogging, that couldn’t be more true. The very first thing that people see about your blog is the website name. One thing that is sure to make the credibility of your website go down is a .blogspot in between your website name and the .com. No one likes typing all that extra stuff and it screams to the world “I am not serious about my site,” even though that may not be true at all. There are many companies that won’t work with you if you have that little tagline in your website name. It is definitely worth it to make this change.
A common misconception is that it is really hard to make this change. false. Another false belief is that it is expensive to do this. false again. It actually only costs $10 a year and it will literally take you about 10 minutes. You will not lose old traffic because blogger will forward all of your traffic to your new URL.
