How to Change Blogspot Blog Address from Blogger Settings

So if you have a blog in blogspot domain and have an address  not much related to the topics you write, you can change it always from the blogger dashboard. There is no restriction from blogger about the number of times you can change the URL of your blog. So if you think the URL is not an easily recognizable one or it does not tell the real niche of your writing, you have the full freedom to change it. The point we should remember is this facility depends on the availability of blog URLs. It means if the URL you are seeking for is already taken, you cannot use that. Blogspot serves first comes basis and it is better you register the one you want sooner.

Points to Remember While Changing the URL
There are some points you should remember while changing the URL of your blogger site. First of all you must understand what is the meaning of changing the address. After changing the URL, the old address will not show your blog. So any bookmarks linking to URL will get a message blog doesn't exist. Similarly your readers will not be able to reach it using the old address. The same goes for the feed subscribers too. So if your blog is a popular one I cannot recommend you to change your blogspot  address (unless you go for custom domain name). After changing your blog's address it is your duty to inform your readers about the URL change. Otherwise they will never find your blog again.
