Roll On: Why I Want My Own Domain.2/26/2017Nurul Afifah
I'm crushing over Edgar Allan Poe awesome works and today is the last day for my "A Post A Day - 7 Days Topics To Go". Yay! I'am going to do a post to wrap things up tomorrow- ie: what I've posted and what I've cooked. Or maybe the day after. We shall see.

So, there isn't really any cons, on buying yourself a domain, especially for a small time blogger like me - except for the part on paying it.
When you got yourself a domain, apart from the disappearance of .blogspot on your link, well, that's pretty much it. Some bloggers would changed to WordPress and that's a bit of an issue - like to republish old posts and losing all comments. Since I would still be using Blogger to host my blog (I loved this blog too much and I really don't want to learn to use other web host thingy), there is nothing else more to it. I'm not sure if I would still be getting the email thing. You know, when instead using Yahoo mail or Gmail, you can have an email based on your website domain. Like most official companies does.
Apart from the obvious coolness of that email stuff, there are few reasons, getting a domain is a good thing.
I should stop use cool as a reason. I am 24 not 14. Lit? Ok. But yeah, it is a good enough reason.
2. Branding effort
Having your own domain is a good branding effort. I'd trust the blog's owner to really be serious on their blogging effort if they have their own domain. Not to mention, no one will have that domain. It is exclusively yours. Sound professional huh?
3. Trustworthy and reliable
Particularly for those who want to generate income or generally having a business affiliated with the website. People keen to trust you more since only legit people can have their own domain name. Even your opinions and reviews would seems from a good mental health kind of person and thus can be taken seriously
4. Sense of responsibility
It will urge you to improve yourself to become better in blogging particularly because you actually spend money. Although a mere RM40 something per year, but folks, money there, money!
