Today is the day I move my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I’ve tested and retested the conversion process, and everything will work smoothly and is totally (sort of) automated.
The haloscan comments will require some tedious manual entry of Blogger Post IDs, but once that is done, the comments should import as well.
For the next few weeeks, you may not see old comments, but don’t worry, they will get imported in short order. In the meantime, you should see a fairly seamless transition. I need to workout some bugs with the archive permalinks, I think I’ll have to create a “redirect” rule in my .htaccess file. If anyone can help me with that, let me know.
I’ll post a step by step update of the process, along with reasons to switch from blogger in the next week or so.
By tonight, expect a new look! Not too dramatic at first, I just want to get it all backed up and keep the permalinks working. Wish me luck
