OddBlogger Switched from Blogger to WordPress
Welcome to my self-hosted WordPress blog, my readers. Finally, I have done it. This blog was on Blogger from last 7-8 months. I think, I did well with Blogger. Maybe, that’s why I started receiving suggestions to switch my blogger blog to WordPress. I didn’t care about suggestions so much. Because I was doing better on Blogger from some WordPress blogs. But when I got suggestions from some experienced popular bloggers to switch the platform. Then I had to give it a thought.
One of the suggestion was from Ms Ileane Smith. Now, after switching my platform, I’m actually feeling very good. So, thanks to Ms Ileane!
What was the most difficult part?
Actually, choosing a hosting provider was the most difficult part. I’m completely new to hosting stuff and WordPress so it was really confusing which way should I choose? But thanks to Francisco Perez (DiTesco) who helped me a lot. We had a lloonnngggg discussion for around 3 days about which hosting plan, why, from where etc. BIG THANKS to him! I couldn’t select a hosting plan suggested by him due to some conditions. But I’m not going to share which I did choose, for now.
Migrating process from Blogger to WordPress was really smooth. Actually, I did this from DiTesco’s tutorial only and got everything thing set up properly in a while. I’m glad he shared his tutorial – “How To Migrate From Blogger To WordPress” which is divide in 3 different parts. I followed all the steps carefully and now I’m all done now (almost).
Holly Jahangiri is helping me, too, in fixing little bugs and letting me know about WordPress and plugins stuff.
I’m glad I found great helpful friends online who help without worry for their precious time. You know, that’s why I love Blogging more.
I have taken this step to make my blog a little more flexible and better. To make it easy and effective for my guests to write on oddblogger.com. I’ll try to give best to my readers. In fact, one post is ready to publish for tomorrow. Don’t miss it, subscribe anyways you like (See sidebar, I have many options for you :)).
