How to Move Blog from Blogger to WordPress

Many bloggers start blogging with some free blog platform on the Internet. Blogger is the most popular free blogging platform on the Internet. By blogging on Blogger, you are writting contents for Google. Of course, Google is very happy with that millions of bloggers help them to write contents for free.

After blogging for a long time, most bloggers do feel that they should set up a blog website that belong to themselves. Actually the cost of web hosting is very cheap nowadays. In fact you can easily cover the cost of setting up and maintain a self-hosted blog website by putting on some advertisements.

Once your new self-hosted WordPress has been set up, and everything is ready. You are very excited. Because you are going to say goodbye to Blogger, a platform that you used for a long time, yet a new WordPress blog is now going to open.

The first thing you have to do now is to import all posts from Blogger. This can easily be done by installing the Blogger Importer plugin.
