I have dived head first and purchased my own domain. The transition isn't complete, but will soon be. I will still be Heck Of A Bunch but my new website address is:
From my understanding, readers who go to my blogspot address will be automatically redirected to my new domain. It is also my understanding that I will not lose any followers or readers in the move. If you don't see my newsletters or find something hinky going on with my blog, please email me at partymix25(at)hotmail(dot)com.
I'm excited to be the owner of my blog now. I'm also super nervous until the whole transition is complete.
