A lot of bloggers start out on Blogger since it’s free and pretty easy to get a blog up and running. However, there might come a time when you decide you want to make the move from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress. The thought of moving your blog from Blogger to WordPress is probably pretty intimidating and you might even think you need a professional to get the job done.

What you might not know is moving from Blogger to WordPress can be done without hiring a professional. Carefully following a few steps will have you up and running on WordPress in know time at all.

How to Move From Blogger to WordPress

In the blogging world, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups, Blogger blogs, who are controlled by Google, and the self-hosted WordPress bloggers, who break free from this control (kind-of). This is my story.

Switching to self-hosted WordPress from Blogger doesn’t have to be a long process. These are the steps I took to move in one weekend!

  • Thanks for this. I struggle with whether or not to move. I like blogger but I know wordpress has so many plugins that would make things easier. I know I’ll get there one day.

    What is everyone’s opinion on having a free blog at first vs. just buying the domain name, then start blogging? I have always assumed you needed to have a free one first but have read different opinions. I don’t think I am ready to purchase the domain name, hosting, etc. yet… But I have only been blogging for about a month.

  • I just started on blogger but someday hope to be on wordpress as I love how professional it looks. Thanks for the information!

    Good Call! I love wordpress and offer so much more flexibility.

  • Thanks so much for sharing! I know many will find this post extremely useful in deciding when and how to move their blogs. It was a post similar to this one that helped me move my blog all on my own back in September.

    Yea! I’ve been so overwhelmed by the thought of this and was sure I was sure I’d have to hire someone! Thanks SITS!

  • This is great! I’m happy with Blogger for the time being but I will definitely keep this in mind when I’m ready to make the move! Thanks!
