Question Cheaper way to use free blogging site and link to custom domain? ANSWER: NameCheap

I started a blog using Wix. I'm not in love with Wix or anything, it's just what I started with because it required no fuss on my part. It's freemium and I'm happy with the free services.

Getting a custom domain is cheap. Dollars per year.

Connecting my free Wix blog to my cheap custom domain would cost $14/month. I'm not going to monetize my blog, it's just a personal blog. But I would like it to show up in search engines for other parents going through similar circumstances. A Wix blog won't show up in search engines without a custom domain, so I'm back to $14/month, which isn't happening.

What am I missing?

I don't have a ton of time to putz around with a less user-friendly blogging site. But, in a few weeks I will have more free time. So switching to wordpress.org is a possibility, even though I initially chose Wix for being plug 'n play.
