Just a quick update on my new domain website, which I had to forcefully update after 10 years of using blogspot.
The new link is now:
It all started when I was recently constantly attacked by a group of spammers for my existing blogspot domain that would disallow me to post content on several social media sites such as facebook.
Blogging at blogspot has never failed to give me major problems in the past. It was only until recently when I started receiving quite a lot of bots spams on my comment pages daily which prompts social media such as facebook to regard it as violations to its community standards.

To get a new domain name, I proceeded to head over to GoDaddy.com to select my preferred available domain link and ended up settling for 3foreverfinancialfreedom on a .com.
I’ve read somewhere that .com domains are superior to others such as .org or .info but has no experience to discuss in details myself.
Once I bought over the domain link, which costs me about $20/year, I had to register and set up in my existing blogspot.
Here’s the step by step guide which I did:
Step 1 – login to your BlogSpot dashboard, and head over to Settings > Basics and you will see an option which says Publishing >Blog address > + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog.
Step 2 – Next, you need to add the domain name that you have purchased with a www prefix, and after adding the domain name, it will give two CNAME records which we will be needing in the next step.
Note: Once you have added the domain name and saved, you will see an error saying “We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12..” and you will get the CNAME record that you need to configure.
Step 3 – Once you have these CNAME details, you will need to logon to your GoDaddy Dashboard -> Manage DNS, and input to link the 2 CNAME.
Step 4 – The first CNAME is a default which everyone is using, while the second CNAME is unique to each individual.
Key the 2 CNAME into the following fields:
Step 5 – You will also need to add the 4 IP Address into your GoDaddy DNS which is standard.
Do note to choose your record type as A when selecting.
Step 6 – Once all the updates are done, go back to your blogspot dashboard and click on “save” changes. By now, you should be able to save successfully.
Google will take care of the redirection portion, so all previous articles and links will also be redirected.
Thanks for reading.
