I've Lost Something

November 12, 2013

In case you haven't noticed, I no longer have - blogspot - attached to my web address!  You can now reach my blog directly at www.andersonandgrant.com.

I've been torn as to whether or not to get my own domain name.  Much of what I read says not having your own name implies you are not a "serious" blogger.  I'm not so sure that I believe this because there are a lot of blogs out there that I consider great blogs even though they maintain a blogspot address.   I'm sure that any of you who follow I Heart Organizing would agree that you can be serious about your blogging job and NOT have your own domain.

I was spending a little time browsing around on Pinterest Friday and visited Wonder Forest for some amazing blog tips.  What really caught my eye, however, was an ad on the side of her blog from GoDaddy.  It was a special offer of domains for $1.99.  I couldn't believe it and clicked right over and got myself a domain.  Who could turn down something that is less than two dollars?!?!!?  And to add to the luck, Dana also has a great tutorial showing exactly how to change your domain in blogger.

$1.99 .Com at GoDaddy.com!

I don't know if I feel like I'm more of a legitimate blogger now, but I do feel a little special that I have my own name that no one else can have!!!!   Unfortunately, since I was using G+ for my comments, changing my domain caused all them to be deleted.  But the important part was that I enjoyed all the lovely words when you left them for me originally!

Sorry to all of you who could really care less about domain names and the inside world of blogging....I'll be back tomorrow with some great tips for setting your Thanksgiving table!
