I'm in the absolute earliest stages of opening up shop--and it's probably too early to even be worried about any of this Smiley but, well, I'd like to be productive.

I'm planning on selling on Etsy initially, but I will be purchasing my own domain name. I have a blog & a bit of a following & blogger lets you purchase a domain for $10 a year. I'm familiar with blogger & would be comfortable with this.

I'm wondering, though, if it would be difficult to 'move' my website from blogger down the road. At first, my site would mostly be my blog with a link to my shop, but eventually I'd like it to be my shop with a link (or page) for my blog, KWIM?

The Borg - er, I mean Blogger - will "own" your domain name if you purchase through them. Better to buy it direct from Godaddy, then redirect it to your blog.

Buy your own domain, host it with wordpress or an open source shopping cart & you're ready to roll Smiley

P.S. - I prefer my own domain against a subdomain any day Smiley
