Problem When Choosing Your Blog Address

The problem you may encounter
when choosing a blog address from the above step is error of name unavailable.

You can’t be choosing address like naijalearn, info, chatgroup makemoney, onlinebiz, when you know that such names are very common and might have been chosen by some folks out there.

In blogspot or blogger two people
can’t use the same address, so when you see name unavailable it simply means the name you typed in has been taken by someone else,and in that case you will have to try other names which you think may be available.

Keep trying until you find available
name. don’t try to use common
names. if you think you really
want to use you proposed name and
it has been taken you will have to add some prefix or suffix to the name e g 247naijaleran, 123infograh,
naijacoded235,419idoncome and so on.
