I am so excited that I figured out how to have my own domain and not be under a blogspot url.  I have been "readerstars.blogspot" since the beginning of my blog because I couldn't decide on a name, but I knew I wanted something along those lines for a name.

I have been putting it off for quite a while but decided to sit down this weekend and get it done.  I looked at several different options to purchase the domain but ended up at  They had the best rates for the year AND for future renewals.  Many of the other companies I looked at had a great deal for the first year, but after that the price went up 3x as much as the first year.  Yikes!  I made sure to ask lots of questions at before settling on their services. - Cheap domain name registration, renewal and transfers - from only $3.98/Year
And when I went to the coupon site, I got another discount on top of it all, making it less than $10 a year!

I am just excited to have finally gotten to this point in my blogging!  If you are looking to purchase a domain for your blog, I would definitely recommend

I used this site to help make sure I was installing it correctly.  I did find that a major trick is to wait a few hours to make sure it is ready to go live.

So, what are you waiting for?  If you are not a dot com yet, head on over to and grab your domain!

And if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask.  I am happy to help!

  1. I've wondered about purchasing my own domain, but what are the perks? I don't want to spend any extra unless I know it will be worth it.
