So, I’m pretty excited to say that I finally pulled the trigger, and am in the process of transferring this ole Blogger blog to WordPress! Whoohoo!
I’ve wanted to take the leap for awhile now, and it feels good that the ball is finally rolling.
Are you thinking about making the switch as well? If so, hopefully these quick tips can help you in some way.
I purchased a super fun WordPress theme template from Pretty Darn Cute. Their stuff is fully customizable and sooo good, you guys. Such a great find!
On to the actual blog transfer….the less fun part.
I did a ton of research on transferring the blog myself, and I decided that would be a bad idea. I didn’t want to take the chance that I could lose everything, or that it would take me MONTHS to do. Mama ain’t got no time for that, haha!
I’m so happy that I found Pauline, an expert from Etsy to transfer my old blog to the new one for about $130. Sign me up!
That price includes:
+ Domain & Web Hosting Setup, Wordpress Installation, Installation of essential plugins (SEO plugin, social sharing, google analytics, anti-spam plugin, security plugin, back up plugin & cache plugin).
+ Install theme with my logo and colors, etc. That’s a bargain in my book! And it’s such a relief to know an expert is handling that task for me in 1-3 days. :)I cannot wait to see how everything transfers.Once the migration happens, I’ll most likely be off line for a few days adding my design touches, personalizing it, etc. But come next week I should be up and running on my fancy new blog. 🙂
I WANNA KNOW…
Anyone else ever make a transfer from Blogger to WordPress? If so, I’d love to hear ALL about it.
Or are you a WordPress veteran? Your feedback, tips, or tricks would be very much appreciated!
