Importing Blogger data into WordPressWritten by James Richardson
Customers that initially built their blog sites with Google Blogger (Blogspot) can have the blog information imported into their WordPress software by using the "Import" feature in the WordPress dashboard. WordPress has a built in "Import" feature that allows you to import different blogs like Blogspot, Tumblr, LiveJournal, and even WordPress. The import process is the same for each. This article will walk you through the steps in importing your Blogspot into your WordPRess on our server.
Importing a Blogger site into WordPress
