    Basically, I want to make a blog o blogger but on its own private domain. It says that it would cost $10 for a years domain registration, but does blogger still host it or will I need to find a host myself?
    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry to not answer your question, but why not create a wordpress blog? The advantage of blogger is it is indexed by Google way faster than any other blog. Using blogger on your own private domain would probably not have the same result.

    Wordpress and the themes are easy to find for free. And yes I believe Wordpress is better than blogger when hosted on a private domain. There is much more customization and flexibility.

    It will cost you the price of hosting and a domain name, once you have these you go to cpanel on your hosting, click the fantastico button and install word press, it will take you around 3-4 mins to do, then you just need to figure out your theme and what plug-ins you would like to use install them and off you go.

    Best of Luck

    You have a lot more options using WordPress when you have your own domain. I don't see any advantages using the blogger.com platform when you have your own domain.

    there's a lot of free hosting out there. But it's better if you can host it yourself, so you get full control.

    You can use the cutom domain option in Blogger to host your blog for free. You just need to spend the money to register the domain.
    You can register a domain name and change the ANAME to point to google servers. Login into your free blogger account and chose custom domain.
