After my How to Start a Blog on WordPress post (this post included tips on how to get your domain, self-hosting, etc. and reasons for why you should pay for blog hosting), I received several e-mails on how to switch from Blogger to WordPress, questions about the whole migration process, whether a person should choose Blogger or WordPress, and so on.
A lot of you asked me what is better: Blogger (Blogspot) or WordPress? I've also been asked “What will happen if I move my Blogspot blog to self-hosting?”
Let me say that I am definitely no expert in this area and just fiddled around with it just so that I could try and help you guys.
This is a very basic set of instructions. If you don't have the time to sit down and do this, please, please just pay someone to migrate your blog from Blogger to WordPress for you.
Some of the tips in this blog post will be a repeat of the How to Start a WordPress Blog post, as I'm trying to help each individual person instead of having someone having to flip back and forth between the two blog posts for the basics.
