Move your blog from blogger to self hosted WordPress

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

  1. Choose a doman name : Buy a domain name – Domain name like mine – is the identity of the website. You will move from a to your own domain i.e. which is a brand in itself.Call it your address on the internet.
  2. 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.
  3. Import content from blogger : You can import your content from blogger into WordPress by using a free plugin available in WordPress dashboard.
  4. 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.
