Blog URL Forwarding

Instead of giving people the cryptic link that is hard to remember / type, I registered an easy-to-remember URL with GoDaddy ($8.95/year) and set it to Forward to my blog.
So, TakingControlOfYourFeelings.com forwards to http://2gethelp.blogs.com/takingcontrol.
Are others doing this, as well?
Is there a better/different way?

    You can also do the more involved domain mapping where you are actually forwarding the underlying DNS to TypePad. It’s a bear of a process, though.

    Then there’s always the option of hosting your blog with a “regular” webhost instead of one of the blog only companies. Look for a host that features the Fantastico automatic script installation feature – most of these will include automatic install of WordPress, pMachine and several other open source blog packages. And it’s not like the Famous 5 Minute Install of WordPress is that hard to do anyway, as long as your host supports PHP and mySQL.
    Cost – typically $10/month or less.

    Thanks, Gents. Good advice.
    I’m now read up on domain mapping and I’ll try it this weekend.
    Just this morning, I just paid my year-in-advance with Typepad, so I’m there for awhile.
