blog help anyone?

Recommended Posts

im trying to find a blog that i can direct to with my own url, rather than like http://www.seeking.gayblog.com (not actual site, no homo). someone mentioned blogspot allowed that, but i couldnt find any info about it in their 'help' section. anyone know of a place i can do this? and if its not self explanatory, how i'd go about doing it?

 

thank you kindly.

you mean you want something like http://www.seeking.com?

 

get the program "blogger". and use blog spot. you'll have to purchase the domain name.

 

then if i remember correctly (i helped a friend set up his blog) you have to upload a basic blog formula to your website that directs back to the blogspot address you have. so basically you have 2 websites.

 

does that make sense?

 

 

that being said i just found this blog http://static-party.blogspot.com/ and im thrilled.

blogger will automatically transfer from seeking.blogspot.com to seeking.com so you pretty much just have to fuck with blogger.

yeah, but what im saying is... from your first post i got the impression that i needed a 'seeking' site also, then blogger would just integrate them magically or something, but this still means that i have to host seeking.com, right? or in other words, i can't just buy seeking.com, and somehow plug it into the blogger page, there by avoiding having to pay a montly hosting fee, etc.

seeking.com would basically be a mirror site of seeking.blogspot.com. you still have to pay every month for seeking.com. you dont have to fuck with seeking.com at all other than uploading the files you want to the server.

 

 

am i understanding your question correctly?

yeah, although im surprised that there is no service that allows you to do it all 'inhouse' so to speak, even for a fee. i dont know shit about web stuff anymore, and what little i did know i learned 7 years ago. it just surprises me that id have to pay for a monthly hosting fee, just so i could have my free blog be mirrored from the url of my site that exists for the sole purpose of mirroring. seems that some blog site would have realized that they could charge $30 a year to host your domain name, saving me the hassle of setting up another page and all that shit.

then again, this stuff is like rocket science to me unfortunately.

that might be possible, thats just the way we chose to do it because it was faster and it was the first option we found. search around a little bit.

also, the last thing i learned interwebs wise was when css started becoming popular. i dont know how long ago that was, but it was quite awhile. whenever i need it i usually go to htmlgoodies.com just for a refresher.

well, let's see...$20 a month, vs. free. i'm not sure why i don't.

 

mostly, i just dont want to have to deal with making a website, thats why.

i'm sure CSS is very important and exciting, but i dont want to deal with it. ha. i dont want to learn anything, i want someone to set it all up for me.

as far as i can tell, no, although you'd think it could be. as far as i can tell, you need a seperate site or something? i dont know. its annoying me.

 

now im thinking of just building a site on godaddy or something. i need to call their people and talk business i think. this might call for a smoothie.
