Publishing Externally? Going Back To Blog*Spot Isn't Difficult

If you're currently publishing your blog externally, because you wanted to use a non-Blog*Spot address, maybe you tire of the limitations of the Classic template, and want to use some of the shiny Layouts template features. Or maybe you have simply grown tired of the many problems with FTP Publishing, a circumstance shared by many bloggers recently.

With that motivation, it's not too hard to go back to publishing on Blog*Spot. Maybe you'll even want to move to publishing to a Google Custom Domain, later.


Not too hard to go back - just select
Switch to: • blogspot.com



Of course, going back will be a bit easier to do if you have a Blog*Spot address available, to return to. And any time you change the URL of a blog, and especially if the blog has any maturity or reputation, you will do yourself a favour to think about the change, first.

I used the URL http://deadb4sunrise.blogspot.com. I purchased a domain name www.dorxie.com. I simply tried switching the name of my blog to www.dorxie.com using the tab "publishing" under settings on the dashboard then nothing appeared. I switched back to my old blogspot address and whenever i view my blog, it displays the empty dorxie.com. Will I ever get my blog back again? thanks

Dorxie,

This needs to be diagnosed, but in Googgle Blogger Help. Not here.
