Babywisemom.com

This post may contain affiliate links.
Well people, I have purchased a domain name for the blog. It is babywisemom.com. That should be easier to remember and find than babywisemom.blogspot.com.

From what I understand, if you type in babywisemom.blogspot.com, then you will be directed automatically to babywisemom.com. I think everything should go smoothly with the transfer. I have discussed things with a blog reader, Meg, who recently did this with her own blog (Thanks Meg!).

I will transition it later this week. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case things do not go as smoothly as they should.

Just curious why you got a domain name? I think it's great. Will we still be able to read it through google reader?

I thought it would just be easier to remember if it was a domain name. To register a name, it is only about $10 a year, so it isn't a big dollar amount. The hosting is free because blogger will still host it and direct readers to the new domain name (automatically). I think you can still read through reader--if I understand things correctly!

I know for computer-savvy people, and blog-knowledgeable people, xyz.blogspot.com is as easy to remember as xyz.com. But for those who aren't as familiar with blogs, xyz.com is much easier.

No worries Valerie :) I'm sure it'll be a really smooth transition!

Yeah, you can still reach it from this site or the new site. If you go to this site (blogger) then it'll automatically direct you to the new site. I've bought several before (well my husband did under my direction:)

Just FYI- I tried typing in babywisemom.com and it said site not found...

Just FYI (I need to post about it), I still haven't been able to get this working properly. Hopefully I can get it worked out soon!
