Given the recent hack problem, one of the ways to guarantee we can maintain control of the blog is to use our own domain name. (Meaning instead of mysticalpaths.blogspot.com, to use something else we own.)
For many years we’ve maintained a shortcut URL to the blog, mpaths.com. So we have the option of using that, picking another, or staying with our current blogspot URL (and the associated risks). Some online hints we’ve read seem to indicate that Google will maintain the blog “authority” given there’s a Google Blogger feature to reassign to a custom URL, so changing the URL won’t hurt the blog search results but may be confusing for you, our readers.
So we’re soliciting your opinion. Below is a blog poll, please give us your opinion of changing the blog web site URL. If you read the blog by RSS reader, email or mobile device, there would be no change or impact for you in such a change.
To see the poll or vote, you must come to the blog web site. Poll below…
