  1. Well, it isn’t quite that simple!

    Yes, you can import all of your posts and your new WordPress blog will be functional, but you are a long way, at that point, from being done.

    All of those old Blogger posts have to be reformatted. For instance, I used Hackosphere’s read more hack on Blogger. That has no meaning in WordPress, so I had to go back to each post (I’m still not finished) and change that to the WordPress “more” function in order to have excerpts on my Sitemap page.

    Ditto a lot of other little hacks I picked up while on Blogger like pull quotes, drop caps, etc.

    Then there is the matter of comments. Haloscan has no import feature so if you made the mistake, like me, of starting on Blogger and using Haloscan comments so that you could ping/trackback, you have the option of either manually copying all those comments into your new WordPress blog or losing them. So far, I have simply lost many because I do not have time to cut and paste them all.

    So there are many reasons to be cautious when picking a blogging platform and then sticking with it! Fortunately, I only had 6 months or so of old posts from Blogger to deal with.

  2. @ Sunil – I use multiple installations of WordPress on same Hosting. Use separate WP instance for each domain, its easy to manage and monetize.

    @ Hopeful Spirit – I also faced the similar problem when I first imported all posts. You need to edit each post manually if you have some custom hacks in blogger blog posts. Still its best import option as your 80% work is done by this and 100% if you don’t have any custom hacks.
