Hopefully you've found me and are reading this :)
Sooooo I tried to change my (old) domain name (http://around-the-way-girl.blogspot.com) to a custom domain name. Paid the 10 bucks and all (paid to make my life more inconvenient that is. thanks google). And now, if you click on the above link you will see, that it no longer works - and neither does the .com that I wanted to change it to. GREAT news. So, after getting absolutely no help from support and seeing in help forums that this was a common, unresolved, problem. I loaded up a new blog. So, here I am. Please follow me here, so we can keep track of eachother!
