What’s in It and What Did I Do?
If you have a blogspot blog, it’s time you got your own domain. If you’ve been blogging with Blog and Retire for 46 weeks, by now you should have a good enough foundation, and even be making the money to pay for your own domain registration and hosting.
Even if you never want to pay for a blog, there is a reason why so many people recommend wordpress: because it’s way better, way more customizable, and has way more options than blogspot. Not only that, but google can terminate your blog at any time, and it’s not that easy to get it back because google support sucks, so you may never get your blog back, and all the hard work you’ve done is lost forever. And that would such very bad. So if you want a free blog and you want to be able to monetize that blog and not worry about it being terminated, go with BlogZam.com. I created BlogZam because there isn’t another free blogging platform like it. And your blog will be safe with me and will never be terminated.
In order to get your blogspot blog onto a wordpress blog, there are quite a few steps. It needs to be a 301 redirect so you keep all the SEO you’ve gained. I outline these steps in this article. If you don’t want to do it yourself, or if the steps just seem too complicated, save yourself the time and let me do it for you. Contact me if you want me to do a 301 redirect of your blogspot blog to a new wordpress blog. I do this service for $15.
Blog and Retire Week 46 emphasizes the importance of having a wordpress blog over a blogspot blog. Not only that, but I talk about writing blog posts, video marketing, creating simple images, pinterest, twitter, facebook, digg, stumbleupon, commenting, forum posting, hootsuite, guest posting, getting guest posts, contacting advertisers, sponsored posts, etc. I’m not kidding when I say that Blog and Retire has it all. That’s why you should sign up.
My house blog is already on wordpress. I changed over all of my important blogs to wordpress once google deleted one of my blogspot blogs. It was then that I realized nothing was safe with google. So instead of google banning me, I banned google (as much as I can anyway). I still use Google maps and images (and youtube since they own that now), but besides that, they are more harmful than helpful in life.
I spent most of the past week getting my blog prepared for my vacation. I will talk more about that in next week’s Blog and Retire Case Study update, so be sure to sign up with your email below so that you can stay updated on that and see how it all goes.
