Blogger Custom Domain

I finally did it, but getting my own domain name to point to my new Blogger account was way harder than I thought it would be.  Blogger kept telling me that was already redirected to another Blog with an error: Another blog is already hosted at this address!  Some of you may remember my old website that was hosted with Google Pages (later Google Sites) as part of the Google Apps suite of services... I didn't think it would matter, but turns out it does.  Blogger thought it was another Blog!
So, I spent a heap of time searching, and eventually came across this blog post, specifically the part about the Service Recycle Procedure.  As the blogger, nitecuzr says, it seems illogical to disable/enable/disable/enable the same thing over and over again, but it turns out it is what was required to get my custom domain redirection working!
So now, I have my www address directed to my easy to use Blogger account, which in turn is linked to my Google Apps account, which means it's another thing to be consolidated and therefore less work to manage!  Yes!
