Benefits of using a custom domain for your Blogger blog

If you saw a tutorial about something and then find it in two site the other one has custom domain i.e www.blogs911.com and other one is www.blablabalabla.blogspot.com will you go for subdomain? personally i would trust the costumed site because it harness reputation and seriousness on blogging thus affecting your readership.
