[Migrate From Blogger to Wordpress]

1. Security- Concious: Based on Research, the rate of blogs hacked on wordpress is higher than that of blogger blog. if you're about to journey on Self-hosted Wp, you have to be more security-concious. This is because on blogger, Google acts as the security for your blog while on Wp, you have to either be the security or hire a pro to secure your blog for you.

*. Stay Updated: You need to stay updated (Resourcefully & Versionically *sorry for the english bomb*). What i mean by 'Resourcefully' is having the adequate knowledge on How-tos by joinning the forum or connecting yourself with a Pro while 'Versionically' means you shouldn't let your Wordpress software be outdated as this might leave it prone to being hacked.

*. Beware of the Plugins You Installed: This is one of the main reasons why a lot of Emmigrants are attracted to using Wordpress. Blogger called it widget, Wordpress called it Plugins. If you're migrating because of plugins, there is the need to be cautious most especially outdated plugins. Plugins when outdated might develop holes which an hacker can use their malicious scripts to infect Wp sites.

*. Backup your Data: I could remember a time when one of Africa's largest discussion forum and nigeria's most popular website Nairaland.com went down, if it wasn't for backup, more users would have been lost. If you miss the story, Click Here to read it.

  2. Definitely bro. Blog designing depends on a blogger's skill. I've seen a blog on blogger customised so much that you'll think its made of Wp. If you think am lying, send me $20 & i will design one for you. *winks*
    In terms of security, thats why i mentioned it first. If you made a research on the internet, Wp probz have the high cases of being hacked & hosting down issue unlike BL. Thanks for the comment

  7. I just landed on your blog & it's very helpful for me... Thank you for this walkthrough!!! Just followed all the things and have to say that's a great article. I have managed to migrate my blog of over 70 posts to a new one and not lost anything. Everything moved over fine.

    Quick question - When I was moving my blogger blog to a WordPress theme that does not allow me to have my blog on my homepage or index file. The theme is designed for the blog to live in a separate folder [site[.]com/blog].
    Is this putting my blog in a subfolder will mess up my SEO or blog feed? I do not have a feed burner account so am I correct to assume that my subscribers are using Atom for the feed?

    I'm confused and don't want to lose rankings or feed subscribers...
