I am now a WordPress blogger! I have been using blogger for the last 4 years and was recently forced to change.
I used the instructions found at this tutorial for a guideline of what needed to be done. http://www.mamablogga.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-migrating-from-blogger-to-wordpress/ It was a bit more challenging then that, as first I had to migrate my blogger FTP blog to a blogger hosted blog before the posts showed up to be imported by WordPress.
I picked WordPress because it’s one of the best alternatives out there and I can write my own plugins for it.
I must say, there is a lot of options here to get my head around. Having very recently become a new father, I haven’t had time to get my head around WordPress.
The other thing I noticed is that almost immediately I picked up spam comments. In two days I’ve already gotten 15 spams on one of my posts. How bizarre is that?
So bear with me as I get the new site up to speed. It will take longer then I had hoped. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to let me know!
