    Do you have to be on blogger ? I mean, it's ~ 8 usd / month to get a real hosting.

    It wont hurt you, it'll most likely help your rankings. I had a couple of blogger blogs when I started and when I updated them to .com domains, they went from 3-4th page to the 1st page (low comp kws).

    I simply bought the domains through blogger.

    So go for it you have nothing to worry about.

    Start from here https://support.google.com/blogger/topic/12451?hl=en&ref_topic=1697868 and keep on clicking on the info that you want.

    It should not be a problem for SEO if you change domain, although temporarily it can have some issues, but that is normal and should be resolved within a few weeks.
