Three Ways to Move Your Blogger Blog to WordPress

Blogger’s issues today have some people frustrated and looking at moving to WordPress. I did it last May and am so glad I moved. It was worth it!

Here’s three ways you can move your Blogger blog to WordPress:

1. Do it yourself. Ask people for help or google your way till you get the job done.

2. Buy the ebook, How to Move from Blogger to WordPress, which gives you step by step instructions on how to move everything over yourself without losing your followers or subscribers. Cost: $28 (use coupon code time4wp)

3. Hire Someone to Move Your Blog. The cost will vary depending on who you hire. Here’s a list of people I know who move that aren’t too expensive.

Let me know if you have anyone I should add to my list of people who do Blogger to WordPress Transfers. If you are on Blogger, are you thinking of moving? If so, what’s holding you back?

    I have thought about it, but not having a lot of readers/ commenters holds me back. I have been thinking about it more and more though!

    Sorry. I should have added… I did a search for moving from Blogger to WordPress and there were some sites that made it seem relatively easy. Of course, I can’t get into blogger right now to look into it, but if I could. :)

    Up till today I haven’t really had any problems with blogger. I am not sure what the advantages are to moving to word press.

    Unless I can do it myself I won’t do it. I can’t afford to pay someone to do it and I’ve never had a problem with Blogger before. Hopefully it doesn’t last.

    I consider moving to WP too.. I am experiencing minimal glitch with Blogger for the past few days. I think I’d have to make myself familiar with WP first. Thanks for sharing :)

    I’ve never had any problems with Blogger before. Does WordPress ever have any problems? I’m not thinking of moving right now, unless there are some major advantages. I won’t pay someone to do it for me, as I can’t afford that. I would consider doing it myself if I knew there a good reason to do it.

        Thanks Stacie. I just read the post and you have some great points. I personally haven’t had any problems on blogger until now, but I’ll take a look at WordPress and see what the deal is. I suddenly have some free time since I can’t get to my blog right now.

            Yes it is. I just created a WordPress blog, but I’m just playing around for now. I can’t seem to add my Google followers, so that will be a project, but I have to go to work now. Hopefully Blogger will be back up by the time I get home, but I still might do WordPress. We’ll see.

    Yes… blogger is still down… I am supposed to be starting my Accuquilt giveaway {my first ‘big’ giveaway} on Monday, and I don’t know what to do… Blogging is supposed to be fun, not stressful.. Between this glitch with blogger, and the one earlier this month with PhotoBucket It has NOT been fun.

      I hear you! Blogger had a major issue last year when it started deleting blogs for no reason. Blogging can be stressful at times even for me. I’ve had hosting issues that caused me lots of worry!

    I just don’t understand why Google can’t be pro-active about Blogger. I’ve had problems off and on for the last 6-8 months with Blogger and I do plan to switch to wordpress but haven’t decided if I want to do it myself or wait to get the $$$ together to have a pro move it over for me (If I have them move it over I’m thinking of doing a remodel of sorts too). I don’t see why they cant’ send out a little news blast that tells us how long they plan for it to be down. Thanks for the info on this book- might use this option instead and try it myself.

    I still can’t believe Blogger has been down for this long. It’s just so strange. They don’t usually have such HUGE problems.

    Side note: Japster did my move from Blogger to WordPress and he was AWESOME.

    When I first started blogging, I started with Blogger, and signed up on WordPress.com as well, just to see what the differences were. I went ahead with Blogger simply because for a newbie, it’s so *easy*. WP just gave me a headache. I couldn’t figure out a lot of things, so I kinda gave up.

    With this debacle with Blogger now, I am giving WP some thought. I do want to give it a bit more time before I invest in a move and design, as my blog is still new.

    I am so glad I made the decision to move last month. I used Erin at Insight Blog Design and she was very affordable. Just $75 for the move. I used another design to do the redesign, but Erin also has some pretty great packages. She managed to transfer all of my followers, even those on GFC, which is huge!

    Check out Wacky Jacqui’s for unbelievable specials and prices right now! Jacqui – does this “plug” get me a discount? haha!

    Thanks,

    Melanie

    Stacie i have just two more questions… i would love it if you wrote back! Anyways – 1. Will i have to schedule my blog to be open for a few days because i wont be able to post during the move?

    Also, on wordpress, will i have more control over security, like the ability to block IPs.

      What I did when I moved was end all my giveaways just in case. Comments can be lost during the transfer process especially when you have a lot. I lost all my comments when my designer moved me. It takes 48 hours for the DNS to propogate across the web. I didn’t post during that time.

      YES you can definitely block ips of stalkers or spammers!! WP Ban is the plugin you use! It’s great!

        okay and final thing..when i went to check outinfo for Hosting THROUGH wordpress, it had a Linux option and a windows option. so im guess mac is a no go? DO you have a mac?

        after this i think ill just contact blogaline or one of them and ask them if i can be hosted with mac operating system. LOL oy vey. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

          My hosting is through Hostgator and I’m not sure of all the technical stuff! I did have the Hatchling plan but now am on Level 5 VPS. I have a PC. I don’t think it should matter though what computer you have though? You can call Hostgator sales and ask them. They are very helpful! Or Blogelina might know.
