One of the tasks that I have undertaken is managing the domain records for my blog. I though I would share a few tips for the less technical people. I start by implementing Cloudflare to manage the DNS records for my domain. This allows me a tool so I don't have to use the tool that the domain seller provides. Cloudflare also provides other tools, but managing the DNS records in one place makes the Cloudflare tool very valuable. I ended up choosing connect.yandex.com to host my email because its a free service, but it has been very dependable since giving it a try. At times the help is a bit lacking as the language reverts to Russian, but once you get things setup you probably won't face many issues. I have run through the https://mxtoolbox.com tool to see if I have configured the basics. I recently came across a blog post for DMARC and wondered if I had addressed the issue. A quick Google search told me I had not addressed the issue. So I used the simple but user friendly https://dmarcian.com tool. A couple of configuration attempts and I had it all ironed out.
Just a quick update to let everyone know that the measured traffic on Blogger.com to my blog has continued to drop. July's views were 292, down slightly from June which came in at 374. My traffic peaked back in February and March when traffic averaged 572 over both months. I might post a google sheet with each month's traffic that I will keep updated. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
