Today, I was trying to create a CSS3 menu using SASS. The idea behind the project was to learn more about SASS. The only concept that I used was nesting in SASS. This has made our life easier to implement a CSS3 only drop down menu.
In this post I will be discussing about moving from Blogger to WordPress.
WordPress is a Content Management System which is highly customizable, simple and easy to use. if you search the internet you will learn that BlogSpot is a good blogging platform to start your blogging career, but for long run self hosted blog is what you should select.[Read here]. However there is a disadvantage with Self Hosted WordPress, that you need to download it and configure it on your own. But with the advent of technology you can move your blog from Blogger to WordPress in just 4 steps.
How to migrate from Blogger to WordPress
Choose a doman name : Buy a domain name – Domain name like mine – kumarmohit.com is the identity of the website. You will move from a yourname.blogspot.com to your own domain i.e. yourname.com which is a brand in itself.Call it your address on the internet.
Buy Hosting : You need web hosting to store your website , which in this case is WordPress platform. Most of the web hosts comes with a one click WordPress installer so you need not to worry about installing WordPress.
Import content from blogger : You can import your content from blogger into WordPress by using a free plugin available in WordPress dashboard.
Set custom redirect in blogger : You need to set a redirect (tell the browsers that you have a new address). To enter a Custom Redirect, go to Settings | Search Preferences and click Edit next to “Custom Redirects.” Enter the old URL in the “Source” field, and the new URL in the “Destination” field. Click Save changes, and you’re done! To add more redirects, select New redirect.
Now there are lot of options for domain bookings and hosting. I will suggest you to go for a web hosting plan which offers personalized support. Simple Servers India has a web hosting plan suited just for bloggers.
Just go the website of Simple Servers India and buy this plan , when you book the blogger plan they provide free support to move your data from blogger to WordPress. You can also ask their help to set up a custom redirect.
Moving your hosting platform might seem a difficult and risky task but if you have a proper support it is easy and worth for the investment.
