If one purchase the domain from Google Domains, it became almost automatic to use the custom domain for the Blogger blog, otherwise, people need to insert a piece of code from the Blogger blog to the Domain registrar and address from the Domain registrar to the Blogger blog.

15. Setting up a Sub Domain for Blogger Blog: To use a sub-domain, one needs to purchase that domain either from Google Domains (https://domains.google.com), GoDaddy (https://www.godaddy.com), Enom (https://www.enom.com) or such other domain registrars or should have the ownership access to it. In order to create blogs at sub-domains, like http://news.gauhati.in or http://blog.lislinks.com one need to insert that address into the Blogger (blogspot) blog without the “http://” and then create CNAME records for the same in the Domain Registrar and it is pretty simple to do that. Different Registrars have different interfaces. You might be able to do it from the “Simple DNS Zone Editor” in most cPanels. If you do not have such an option, contact the Help pages of your Domain Registrar. After creating this record with your Domain registrar (and after it has propagated) your blog will be published in that sub-domain.

16.

Kindly note that “/-/” after default is note given as mistake but it is very essential part of the feed. These addresses can be used to burn the feed with Feedburner to provide the Email alert services to the Blog users. The RSS feed of a question in a feed will have a website address like https:// badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?q=Keywords

17. Retrieving More Content from RSS Feed: In general, the Blogger feed provide the most recent 10 or 20 item through RSS feed and so when they are burned with Feedburner, the resulting burned-feed also contain that much of content in the feed. To overcome this problem i.e. to retrieve more than 10 or 20 item (or posts), one can use the following technique
The default Blogger Blog feed will look like http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default (where badan-barman is the blog address). One can add “?start-index=1&max-results=1000” after default to retrieve 1000 posts, so the new web address will be http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?start-index=1&max-results=1000
In case of the RSS feed of a single word tag, its RSS feed will look like http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/Article/?alt=rss . One can add “?max-results=1000” after the feed to get 1000 most recent items (or posts), so the new address will be  http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/Article/?alt=rss?max-results=1000
In case of RSS feed of a multi worded labels, its RSS feed will look like http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/Bio%2Data/?alt=rss and one can add “?max-results=1000” after the feed to get 1000 most recent items (or posts), so the new address will be http://badan-barman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/Bio%2Data/?alt=rss?max-results=1000

8. Replace the site name http://badanbarman.in  and https://badanbarman.in with your own site name. If you want to open all external link in a new window instead of “_self”, kindly write “_blank” or even you can delete the portion “.attr("target", "_self")” to make all external link to behave as they are formatted in the posts of the blog.
9. Now click on Save template

25. Conclusion: There are if not thousand then hundreds of options to design and develop a blog, however, if one do not want to pay for his/her blog, then there are only two options left - Blogger and WordPress. A mass percentage of the blog available over Internet uses these two platforms. Some people say that the Blogger is better than Wordpress, other argued that Wordpress is the best blogging platform. However, when it comes to free there is no Blogging platform better than the Blogger.
The downside of blogger includes lack of creating one’s own brand, virtually one cannot remove the icon at the footer that say “Powered by Blogger.”. It is just like a “me to platform”. Again, one wrong post which is against Google’s Terms of Service in any Blogger blog may result banning and deleting the blog from Google’s end.
