But before I show you, I want you to know some things about blogspot platform.
What is Blogspot all about?
Blogspot or Blogger is a Content Management System (CMS) owned and managed by Google. This CMS is designed mainly for blogging purposes.
Blogspot offers free content hosting for its users plus security (on WordPress, these things are bought). And sincerely, Blogspot is underated.
As a business person, you can blog about your business. If you are passionate about anything and wish to share with the world, you can create a blog for it.
When compared with WordPress (.com and .org), the functionalities WordPress it has differentiate it from Blogspot. One can create any website either online store or blog on WordPress.

Issues with free blogspot account
These are some of the problems you may have with free blogspot account;
- Free blogspot account gives you ugly web address e.g assistblogger.blogspot.com which doesn’t sound easy to remember on the part of your visitors.
- Except you have premium contents, you may find it difficult to see other professional bloggers link back or collaborate with you.
- Can be terminated at anytime because it is not owned by you (it is just like when I open a subdomain for you on my blog e.g mrbean.assistblogger.com which I can decide to delete anytime I feel like).
But with .com/any other domain extension of your choice, you still own your domain even if google terminate all blogspot accounts which I don’t see happening in years to come.
- If you stay too long on free blogspot, by the time you get a custom domain, my friend, your domain authority will be back to zero. Why not start with custom domain at the beginning?
- Advertisers may not be forthcoming and you may not be able to apply for some ad networks.
