Moving from Blogger to WordPress

I moved from Blogger to WordPress. For several reasons, including:

  • WordPress has an easier to use mobile app for publishing on the go.
  • WordPress has a much cleaner writing interface.

There are several downsides: WordPress doesn’t support custom domains unless you pay for a subscription. It also doesn’t support video uploading or JavaScript widgets unless again, you pay. I can live without those, for now.

You can find plenty of detailed tutorials on how to move blogging platforms elsewhere on the web. The gist of it is:

  1. Login to Blogger and choose Settings.
  2. Select Other and backup your content. Your backup content includes your writing, links, images and comments other people have left on your articles.
  3. Import the Blogger content backup into WordPress. Choose a theme. Done.
