Lately I’ve been thinking, should I get a custom domain name? I got on Go Daddy and it is a lot cheaper than I thought it would be, but I’m a little nervous or hesitant on the matter. I’ve looked at tutorials and it seems to be relatively easy (and I’m sure they have Custom Domain Name for Dummies for people like me). People can be creatures of habit and I have gotten use to blogspot. (note: Blogger auto-corrected blogspot to “bloodspot” which made me tee-hee). Anyway…while it is intimidating I have always been annoyed by all the dashes in my url: she-is-too-fond-of-books.blogspot.com, it is a mouthful to say when giving people my address “My blog is She is too fond of books, but it has hyphens between each word.” Not only is it a mouthful but also a little immature, lacking in professionalism.
When I started blogging I loved Louisa May Alcott’s quote “She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain” little did I know that another book blog had also claimed the name. Okay, maybe not original but it still fit me perfectly, the important thing is that I like it as it is my space. I then found out that the url for sheistoofondofbooks was already taken along with other variations. I apparently wanted that url badly and added the hyphens.
After four years I’m thinking about moving it. My question (and it might be silly) is: after 4 years is it too late to change and if anyone has made the switch what service did you use and how hard was it?
