?'s About a Domain

In the "Settings" on Blogger it gives you an option to buy your own domain, if we do that will that exclude the blog from the new policy? It's only $12 and, even though I don't post pictures, it would be nice not to have to worry about this stuff!

Reading here they don't list that as an option...

Oh, if you want to back up your blog look here for a how to.

Also, I've been told, and read, that if you have your own domain you must have a host, but it looks to me like if I purchase this via Blogger I don't need a host...anyone know if this is true?

  1. If you're not posting images, I wouldn't worry about it for now. They're not targetting erotica, but porn.
    The domain is the URL, so it won't have blogspot on it.However, blogger still own your site. If I was to go down the domain name route and self-hosting, I'd pick Wordpress not Blogger. Don't spend money unless you really have to.

    For now, sit tight. You're probably way down the list of target blogs.

    1. DF, thanks! That clears it up :)

      It's more that I want to be able to post what I want to and I don't like the fact that they can take down my blog if they feel the need. However, I'm not jumping ship just yet--I take moving very seriously.

  2. An alternative is being created if you are interested. Lady M is establishing a new site at fetblogger.com. Mistress Marie posted information on her site today. I have just expressed interest in transferring my blog. DtBHC.

    1. DtBHC, I just saw that! I think...I don't know what I want to do, lol. I might wait a couple months and then decide.

  3. Hi Misty, thank you for the link to how to back up your blog. Some great advice above. I agree with DF, it shouldn't be a problem for you.

    1. Roz, no problem!

      I don't think it will be a problem for me either, I just don't like blogger telling me I can't, and now that they've told me I can't, I kinda want to! lol.

      I'm staying though :)
