In order to set up a custom domain, so that your original Blogger address automatically forwards to your new domain, do the following steps:
1) Login to your Blogger account https://www.blogger.com
2) Select the blog to update or create a new blog
3) In the left menu, click Settings > Basic > Publishing
7) Under the point 9 of instructions, 4 IP addresses will be given, copy and save all 4 of them:
184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124

Enter your domain name in the format mynewdomain.com, and list the IP addresses. You'll need to add four separate A-records which point to four different Google IPs.
mynewdomain.com A 126.96.36.199 mynewdomain.com A 188.8.131.52 mynewdomain.com A 184.108.40.206 mynewdomain.com A 220.127.116.11
