Custom Domain Names Hosted By Blogger

Until this week, if you wanted to have a Blogger blog, you had two choices - host the blog on Blog*Spot (as a subdomain of Blog*Spot.com), or host it offsite (with your choice of domain).

Now, there's a third choice - have a blog hosted by Blog*Spot, but with the domain name of your choice. All of the features of New Blogger, under your custom domain name. But beware, this is yet another Beta product (if not by name, by nature), and various problems have been identified, to date.

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Add A Custom Redirect, If You Change A Post URL

When you rename a blog, the most that you can do, to keep the old URL useful, is to setup a stub post , with a clickable link to the new URL. Yo! The blog is now at xxxxxxx.blogspot.com!! Blogger forbids gateway blogs, and similar blog to blog redirections . When you rename a post, you can setup a custom redirect - and automatically redirect your readers to the post, under its new URL. You should take advantage of this option, if you change a post URL.
