Custom domain name:
Most of the amateur bloggers don’t want to spend even a penny when they start to blog. As a result, they start their career choosing a free domain name.
We suggest you start your blogging career with your custom domain name as you can establish your own brand name. You can even create your brand with free domain but the real domain owners have more control over your site. You grow brand image for the domain owners than you grow for your blog. Also, having custom domain gives you control over your blog.
You must be well-known with this fact. Whenever you get into a new site, the first thing that creates impression for you is the look and feel of the website. Same happens with your readers, the first thing they see is your blog design, so be sure you make it the best.

Choose a professional looking theme and if affordable, go for some premium theme. This will help you to create impression about your website to your readers.
