Blog URL

Okay, I really need all of your help. I am trying to decide if I should change my url to match my blog name. When I originally started the blog, I couldn’t come up with an original name so I just called my blog Bailey’s Book Reviews. A few days later, I came up with IB Book Blogging and I stuck with it. Well, when I changed my blog name I forgot to change the blog url to match the name. This has caused many people to mistake my blog name for Bailey’s Book Reviews. I really don’t know what to do because I don’t want people to come to my blog using the old url and not find me. I could really use all of your input on if I should change my blog url or not.

Thanks for all of your help!!

    I think if you're having problems with people mistaking your blog name and it really bothers you, then you should go ahead with changing the URL. I'm not tech savvie at all but I know that there is a way that you can set up a re-direct system from your old url to your new url. Does anyone know any more about that?

    If you get a domain name (a .com address), you won't have to worry about people not finding you–your old links will automatically direct to the new website.

    I'd say go for it! I had the same issue on my blog, and it's been much easier for people to find it with the new URL. :)

  3. Thank you for the input, girls! =) I think I will try to convince my mom to get me a domain name so I don't have to worry about people not finding me. I didn't know that if you bought a domain name, your old url was automatically redirected to the new one, so thanks Lauren!!

    I had the same problem but I changed the BLOG NAME to agree with the URL, so I think that is a little easier. If you are going to do it, the sooner the better. You can have all the hits on your old URL redirected to your new blog, I'm sure. Good luck!
