Bloggers, if you’re looking to move your site from Blogger to WordPress, I wanted to share a possible way you could do so and save money at the same time. My good pal Sharon Hujik has recently released her comprehensive, clearly written e-book called Blogger to WordPress.
Why would someone want to move from Blogger?
While Blogger is free and quick to set up, it definitely has its limitations, particularly for those who wish to grow and customize their sites. Blogger also has a reputation for deeming some very legitimate sites as “SPAM” and shutting them down. Those of you with Blogger blogs may have experienced frustration last week as there was extended downtime. I am personally on self-hosted WordPress and have enjoyed the freedom and control it has allowed me.
It can be expensive to pay someone to migrate your site, so you might want to consider doing it yourself. Sharon’s e-book is $35, but you can use promo code timeforwp to save 20%. Even if you are not particularly tech savvy, I think you’ll find Sharon’s clear cut directions and helpful images will get you from Blogger to WordPress easily and smoothly. Topics include finding a host, migrating your site, understanding plug-ins, and much more. You can also download the preview which includes the Table of Contents free.
Sharon is personally my go-to tech gal and I can’t recommend her enough. She has helped hundreds of bloggers move to WordPress, so knows her stuff. If this is something you’ve been considering doing but didn’t know where to start – check out her e-book!
