Besides the obvious mysite.com and mysite.blogpost.com What are some differences in having your own domain, and having a blogspot account? I was thinking of finding a niche, and setting up a blogspot account with no adsense, no affiliates, nothing. Just articles (3-5/day), some backlinks, some bookmarking.. Simple SEO (If that is called SEO even) and see if I can bring any Traffic to the site Good idea for a person who never made a blog in there life before? Or a waste of time?
