    Okay . . .I blog about technology and the blog is slowly growing. As I get better is it neccessary that I get a domain name?

    I personally believe that a stand alone domain will give you more of an ability to grow.

    I personally will never blog on a site that isn't owned by myself. Call me paranoid about trust, but I like to have full control over EVERY aspect of my site. Everything from the editing tools to the version to where the site is located on the server. I run a dedicated server for all my sites.

    As far a professional, I have seen many professional bloggers use a subdomain, but I think it's more professional to have a domain. Remember that the domain name makes a big difference in your site theme. See here for a good article.
