Go Daddy has created a handy tool that simplifies the process of adding a custom domain to your blogger.com based blog(s).

Until, now setting one up, was an frustrating experience, especially for those who aren't quite sure of the difference between an A-NAME and C-NAME record or where to find them. The new Go Daddy tool makes it possible to redirect your blogspot domain to a custom Go Daddy domain with the click of a button, revealed Brett Wiltshire, Product Operations, Blogger.com.

"If you already own a Go Daddy domain and would like to connect it with your Blogger blog, head to the Go Daddy tool, log in to your Go Daddy account, enter your preferred domain or subdomain (for instance www.example.com or blog.example.com), click Confirm, and voila, your DNS records are updated.

Once your DNS records are set correctly, log in to Blogger, click "Add a custom domain" in the Publishing section of the Settings page, follow the short instructions, and your custom domain will be set up and redirecting in 24 hours or less," Wiltshire explained.

Also, if you don't own a domain, and would like your blog to redirect to a "custom domain," you can now purchase one and get it set up without complicated configuration right from the Blogger dashboard in the Publishing section of the Settings page.
