I have brainstormed and now have narrowed down a niche that I would like to start a blog on. I have a domain name picked out, but I'm still not sure on the hosting I want to use. I have had a site hosted on HostGator before, but shut it down because load time was super slow and my template would never load correctly. I moved that site to Blogger hosting with my custom domain and the load time was super fast. But since, I have deleted that blog because it just wasn't a niche I was excited about. Anyway, I'm excited about the new niche I have chosen and I have a lot of experience with it, but I'm not sure which way to go with hosting. I was impressed with Blogger's load time and that I didn't have to deal with plugins. Blogger also has a template that I love. So, my question is, are there any negatives with using a custom purchased domain name and Blogger's hosting? TIA
