There are quite a few bloggers who are unhappy with Blogger.com – it seems late last year Blogger asked their users to update their Blogger accounts by integrating them with a new Google interface. I have read that many, many bloggers have had difficulty with this transition and are not happy with Blogger.
Many of those unhappy bloggers are attempting to set up their blogs on their own domain, using WordPress as the backend CMS system. They want to cut their ties with Blogger and take control of their own data. After installing WordPress, they have learned that the WordPress import engine can no longer access Blogger accounts and download the posts and comments into their new WordPress install. I have read horror story after horror story about being unable to import their posts. In many cases, bloggers are faced with the reality of losing years worth of their written work.
After some considerable serching I located a plugin that will import data from the NEW Blogger blogs into WordPress. Ady Romantika has written a plugin that works great. I did an import today and it handled the process seamlessly and to perfection. Thanks for a great plugin, Ady. I hope the word can get out to many frustrated Blogger users and that they can retrieve their data before Blogger finds a way to block your plugin.
