Migrating from Blogger to WordPress

blogI finally took the plunge and switched my personal blog from Blogger to WordPress. There’s no learning curve to a blog service, because I use LiveWriter for that- it is a separate program that links to your blogs (any blog) online, and let’s me use all the functions and editing features I like.

I’m also redoing my blog and web site to better reflect what I hope to embrace as ‘life as an adventure’, but more importantly, to brand myself in some fashion. I don’t think ‘frootbat31’ said much about me. It’s a transition, that I hope will also transition my attitude about myself.

Fortunately, migration from one blog to another is pretty simple;

  1. Go to Blogger and sign in.
  2. import bloggerGo to Settings then go to Other
  3. At the top, you’ll see links to Export to a file. Export to your computer.
  4. Now go to your WordPress blog, and go to Tools
  5. Go to Import. Select the blog service you previously used, and now you’ll be prompted to select the file you downloaded.
  6. Select Upload and Import.

See? Easy.
