How to Import Blogger to WordPress

How to Import Blogger to WordPressSo, you want to move to WordPress?! Great idea. WordPress gives you a lot more freedom to express yourself than blogger does. Which is great if you are creative and itching to spice up your site. Before we can move, there are a few steps we must take to ensure you keep all of your hard work.

1. Export your blogger file.

To do this you need to go to your blogger profile->settings->other->backup content->save to computer. Be sure to save this in a document folder, and just in case put it on an extra storage device.

2. Download blogger importer on WordPress.

Go to your tools and click import. From there click install now under blogger.

3. Load imported blogger file.

Click on run importer under blogger in the import section or plug-ins. Insert your imported .xml blogger file.

4. Check your work.

Check to be sure that all of your posts, pages, comments, categories, and tags are all there. Pictures can be imported too. Verify everything is where it needs to be.

There are times when there may be an error. If this occurs, restart the process or edit the proper fields. Some media may not move  due to the URL of the file. Be sure to correct that before you make your new site public.

Next, I will show you how to redirect your blogger to your new site. Stay tuned!
