    You can still do it. If you want the title you have now for your blog if it's available you just follow the steps with that name and then it's dot come instead of blogspot. Or if you want to change it , it will automatically redirect everyone to your new domain name. It shouldn't be too hard. Don't live with it you should get what you want life's too short to settle 😉

    Thanks for sharing. You know when i started blogging few months ago, i was a real novice and i made a mistake of using my last name instead of my blog name. Now i wish to have my own domain but is very late because i don't want to use my last name in the .com thing. And is very impossible to change my url. Well i just have to manage. I would have made all the changes when i first started.
