So, you’ve been thinking about moving to WordPress eh? You’ve played with Blogger and decide it’s time to move on, bigger and better things. Kind of like when you got stuck with all those Beta tapes when everyone else went VHS.
Well, no more. I’m sneaking from my burrow to share a quick tidbit or two. Thank goodness for warm weather in Iowa, or there’s no way you’d get him from in front of his fireplace!
So, first of all, go to WordPress.com and sign up. Ah ah ah! Before you starting whining- Woodie HOW do I sign up, read here…
WordPress for Non-Techies
Once you’re signed up, then go back to your blogger account, and click export blog from the Settings/Basic tab.
Save this file somewhere super duper important. No, not there. Not there either! Yes, there…that’ll do it.
Now go to your brand spanking new WordPress.com site you just opened up.
Go to Tools> Import and choose Blogger. (see how easy this is?)
Now on the next screen, it says Have a Blogger export file? Well, of course you do!
Remember where you hid it? Click the browse button, find it, then click Upload file and import.
On this next screen, make sure you tick this box.
And th-th-th-that’s all folks. =)
Now if you’re thinking of moving from Blogger to WordPress.org?
That’s a whole different bunch of pansies. Stay tuned for another episode of . . . dum dum dum!!!! Woodie knows WordPress!
