This is the best way to get a domain name for cheap. This is for blogger. I have since moved over to WordPress and I love it however if you are a mom looking for another alternative to paying $50-$60 to host your own domain for your blog this may be a great solution.

When I first started to blog I was using blogger. When I found this little tip I was so happy I shared it with others and some had not heard of this method so I really wanted to share it with you.

Many mom bloggers want a more professional appearance. If you are one of those I’m sure you are thinking that you really need a domain name. Well I just stumbled on the easiest and as far as I can tell the cheapest way to accomplish that task.

I’ve shared this with a few people and they didn’t even know it was possible. So it is possible, not only that but I’ve done this with my blog.

I was looking at hosting options and that is how I discovered this gem. This is the most amazing option because what if you don’t feel like keeping your name for 3 years or paying $50 – $60 just to get a yourblog.com? Well thanks to blogger you don’t have to.
