Somebody sounds a little jealous of my Brilliant Idea

Keep using your old address for mail until your
new domain has some juice.  And if you don't want
to reveal your content before it's done, get your
friends to link to your "coming soon" page and do a
redirect when the whole site is up.

Exactly.  That's the reason to use one that's
pre-promoted and pre-deployed for you, and that you're
going to try to score high on anyway.  And Google
even measures the right kind of reputation --
"writes something worth reading" reputation.
