If you have a blogspot blog or custom domain, there is a Blogger
import in wordpress:
- Left Sidebar Tools, Import
- Select Blogger
Of course, if you have your own hosting and use Blogger via FTP to
publish your blog, this is not an option
I tried using the RSS feed import in blogger (as did other people), but when I tried the import, it failed with no errors. (No posts were added to my WordPress blog, yet the import displayed only, “All done, Have fun!”
Instead, I chose to convert my Blogger FTP blog to blogspot.
- Go to Blogger.com
- Click on “Settings” for your ftp blog.
- Under the “Settings” tab, click “publishing”
You’ll see the following options
Switch to: • blogspot.com (Blogger’s free hosting service) • Custom Domain (Point your own registered domain name to your blog) • SFTP (secure publishing on your ISP server)
- Click blogspot.com
- Pick an arbitrary blogspot.com address, verify the word, and select [Save Settings].
Then follow the normal steps to import the redirected blog into WordPress.
If you’ve already imported from Blogger, you may have to select [Clear Account Information] and then [Authorize] to refresh the list of blogs.
One response to “Importing an ftp blogger blog into WordPress 2.7”
Great idea. Now that Blogger is deprecating ftp, I’m in the process of switching my stuff over to WordPress.
