How to export a WordPress blog to Google Blogger

27.12.2013 Nicky Herak
There are times when an individual might need to export their blog from one platform to another. For instance, there are some people who might have tried using WordPress, but then found that it’s not to their liking. A good example of this is when they realize that using Google Blogger is much easier for them, since it automates most of the things they need to get done properly. In addition to that, using Blogger might make it much easier for you to integrate other services such as your Google Plus account to make everything more seamless.

All these and many more are valid reasons to change from WordPress to Blogger. However, one thing that is very difficult for many people to do is to make such a move without losing information. For instance, if you had tons of blog posts in WordPress, you might not be able to replicate them manually on Blogger. Fortunately, there are easy ways to automate the process. The process in doing this includes:

Export the file

Go to the WordPress dashboard, press 'The Tools: export' link and then save the file that you end up with after you click on the 'Download Export File'.

Conversion

You will then need to use an online conversion tool to convert the downloaded file into a Blogger format. Most of such applications are very easy to use and don’t need you to spend any money on them. All you need to do is pick one that has a good reputation. After you are done with this, the converter will then offer you a download that you will need to save on your computer.

Import

You will then need to go to your blogger dashboard then click on the 'Import Blog' button. This will give you an option to upload the file that you had downloaded after the conversion.

The best thing is that all the processes above take a very short time, even if you have a very large blog.
