Friends, blogger is a free blogging platform that provides us free hosting & a sub-domain to create a free blog but with a sub-domain, it looks unprofessional, so blogger also provides us an option to add 3 party custom domain names & according to me it is a nice feature of blogger.com
With a free subdomain, your blog will look like name.blogspot.com & its looks very unprofessional, isn’t it?? So why not to buy your own domain name and connect it with blogger.
After connecting your domain with blogger it will look like example.com instead of example.blogspot.com and it looks very professional & will help you to build a personal brand.
