There are a lot of discussions on this website about the benefits of hosting your own blog versus sticking with blogger. Most of those conversations are over my head--a sure indicator that I should stick with blogger.
But I've already gotten ahold of my own url address (www.chocolateincontext.com) and I currently redirect traffic from there to my blogger blog (www.chocolateincontext.blogspot.com). Not only is it incredibly simple to tell people to visit chocolateincontext.com, I feel that having my own web address is beneficial to me on a professional level. Of course, as soon as people click on chocolateincontext.com, the reroute happens and they see the bloger address in their web browser, decreasing the professional appearance a bit. So I think I'd like to take one more small step away from blogger, and actually locate my blog at the chocolateincontext.com address.
I know there's an option of doing your hosting BY blogger AT another address. Does that simply mean that everything will stay the same in terms of how I can use blogger's program and storage space? If so, how do I do this? (And are there any downsides?) I know that when I set up the blog, blogger offered me this option, but I'm not sure how to do the changeover now.
Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks!
