Great news! I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but babywisemom.blogspot.com is now babywisemom.com! You may not have noticed because the internet is doing it all for your. Your shortcuts and everything will still work as they did and will just forward you on.

The one thing I don’t have figured out is getting it so if you type it rather than https://www.babywisemom.com/ it takes you to https://www.babywisemom.com/. I followed the instructions and have ot wonder if the IP addresses google gives are outdated or something (because the instructions certainly are).If anyone knows, please inform me!

So for now, you can type in babywisemom.blogspot.com or https://www.babywisemom.com/ to get here.

    Hi Valerie, it seems to be working fine? I just tried the babywisemom.blogspot.com and babywisemom.com and both took me to the blog (with babywisemom.com in the address bar). Is that how you wanted it? I've forwarded domains to a blog before so I might be able to help if not.

    Hmmm, I just tried babywisemom.com and it didn't work for me. I'll ask James how to do when he has a free moment since I know he knows how. Sorry if I end up having a baby before I get back to you though…that's right, no baby yet!

    Cindy, yes I want it to come even if you type in babywisemom.com with the "www". It worked for you? It isn't working for me and not Rachel. I wonder why it would work for some and not others?I followed the google instructions (they run blogspot). I set my AName (is that what it is called?) to point that way. I don't know if their IP addresses in their instructions are old or what. My .com is through godaddy.

    That is very strange; I am doing it now http://www.babywisemom.com and I get the blog main page.I use godaddy as well – what you do is 'domain forwarding' in godaddy. Login and click on the domain name; look for domain forwarding. You can then set it to foward to the babywisemom.blogspot.com – it should show up transparent to readers as they can get their either way.On my website, I own the .com and .biz – so http://homespunfromtheheart.biz/ takes you to the same place as http://homespunfromtheheart.com and looks the same, etc. the only thing I did was in go daddy domain forwarding. Let me know what happens, I have few tecchy friends to ask.

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