At Most 3 Days???

I purchased my domain name through Blogger. (Yes, I'm a Blogger fan)  When I view my blog through my Blogger Dashboard, I get the "Your blog is in Transition" message and it should work for everyone "after at most 3 days". 

While searching to make sure I did everything right, I came across horror stories... "transition" for 11 days, whole blogs disappearing, no blog redirection.  I'm getting a little nervous.  Who am I kidding?  I've been nervous from the get go.

By purchasing through Blogger, I thought they did all the work.  Now I'm starting to wonder....

How do I know I'm error free? How can I see my blog's transition status? Is there something else I should be doing? How long before my blogspot blog is redirected to my .com blog? Will they let me know or do I have to just keep checking?

Then there's this Google Apps thing.  Will I need it to manage my blog or just my domain?

All I wanted was a smooth transition.  Is that too much to ask?

Instead... my blog is... in transition... for at most 3 days.... and today is day 3.

As always, I'd appreciate any help / tips / recommendations you may have for me.  Please feel free to email me at:

I sure hope it all gets fixed for you. I had someone else do my blog design and the domain name etc. My came from GoDaddy, but since the designer did all the stuff I haven't seen issues with the way she did it. :o( Sorry for your issues.

The thing is, I'm not even sure there are issues. I have all these unanswered questions.
I guess I won't know for sure until after day 3...bom, bom, bom...

I'm getting feeds from both addresses at the moment but seem to have full content at both. Hope it all settles for you soon. I know how frustrating it can be.

Well Mona, I am happy to tell you it appears your blogspot address has been redirected to www.monasmilestones.com.

I can see your domain in my address bar as I'm typing this! Also, I subscribed to your feed when it was blogspot and it is still active as well! That is being redirected also.

Thanks Ladies!
I think all could have been better if Blogger just filled me in on what was to be expected, you know?

I just made the switch to my own domain name recently. It was a major headache in the process, but I am so happy now that it is done. I hope it goes well for you too.
