Steps to Moving from Blogger to WordPress
Moving your Blogger blog over to WordPress may seem like an intimidating task at first, but it doesn’t have to be. I have broken it down into four easy steps that I took to move my blog. Bear in mind, that it wasn’t free for me to move. I hired someone to do it for me and I purchased a premium theme, but you don’t have to. The only costs you can’t really get out of are the domain and hosting packages.
- Step One: Buy a domain (Prices range from $4 – $15/year).
- Step Two: Purchase Hosting Package for your new site. (Prices around $60 to $100/year for a shared hosting plan)
- Step Three: Purchase a WordPress Theme or find a free to use that you like. (Prices around $70 – $100).
- Step Four: Find a designer to move your Blogger blog over to WordPress or find information online to do it yourself. (Designer costs range from $60 – $150+). They will normally move your existing design from your Blogger blog right to your new WordPress blog. If you want to get a new look, then that costs extra.
Total Costs? Minimum $64, Maximum $365+
Is it worth it? YES, DEFINITELY!
