I'm also currently in the midst of updating (and hopefully improving) my blog. I looked into switching my domain name to sarahshearer.com, and losing the "blogspot" part of the address. Well, that name is already taken, but I'd like you to see some of the suggestions I was offered. Although I 'm giving "marriedwomanshearer.com/net" and "sarahdancer.com/net" some serious consideration, your suggestions are welcome, too!
Choose a domain name (step 1 of 3)
You need a domain name to use Google Apps. A domain name is a unique name that will be assigned to your Google services. For example, if you choose example.com, you can create an email address for email@example.com and web pages at buy.example.com. You can also sign up with a subdomain, such as sales.example.com, to create an email address for firstname.lastname@example.org.
