The most common advice I give to anyone starting a blog is to see if you blog's domain is available and then buy it as soon as you can. Cupcakes Take The Cake was founded by Rachel and me nearly ten years ago. Blogging was pretty new back then and we both had full time jobs. The idea of buying a domain name wasn't first and foremost in our minds. Having your own domain name and hosting give you the flexibility to your website and to develop your online brand. As part of their #MeIsAboutYou campaign, Domain.me offered Cupcakes Take The Cake one year of free domain, so we now have CupcakesTakeTheCake.me. This is great because it's easier for our readers to find us.
If you want to be the queen or king of your domain, then you can enter our giveaway for one free year of domain registration.
