Move from your free blogging service NOW if you intend to make money

I have said this and I will repeat again. I notice how advertisers have opted not to engage bloggers writing from LiveJournal, Blogspot, Xanga, WordPress.COM and other free services. Well, I do not blame these advertisers because the service can and had been terminated with short notices. For example. closed down many blogs within very short notices (within hours). Another free blogging platform informed that they will also close the member’s blog if there are complaints received.

Therefore, if you are an advertiser, you certainly do not want to pay good money for something that disappeared. Moreover, in IMHO, if you are going to make money, might as well make it using your own domain instead of using freebies.

So, folks, if you are blogging from blogspot or any of those free services, get yourself cushioned with Plan B now. Find your own hosting. It is not expensive and worth it in the long run. No point you get a PR5/10 on a blogspot and not able to use it in future. Get your own domain, work on the PR, rankings, traffic and the site is yours to keep.

    Hi auntie, I am interested to know how did you re-direct your traffic from blogspot to your own domain. You know, when I entered Lim Kit Siang’s old blogspot blog, it redirect me to his own paid domain.

    Yep, that’s right if you want to make some cash you need to spend some too.

    Plus it is more liberating to have your own domain and work on it by yourself in any way that you want.

    It’s like going to work, but not really :)

    LOL! I am one of the nasty advertisers who discriminated against some of the host sites. Boohoo! I think to make up, I will put up another op for those with blogger, wordpress accounts, etc.

    New domain ah? Haiyo, I am still trying to build traffic for my hochiak blog leh…manyak susah ler…
