How to shift Blog from Wordpress to Blogger

When we shift our wordpress blog to blogger , it becomes a typical process if we do not follow a right way . I tried in blog post to make this process easy .
How to shift Blog from Wordpress to Blogger

Why should we transfer from wordpress to blogger :-

1. If we are not professional bloggers  we should go with free blogging , at blogger .
2. If traffic is not as we desired .
3. If blogging Income is low .
4. Hosting facilites are not requiring now .

Steps to transfer from wordpress to blogger :-

1.  Login to your Wordpress  blog  .

2. Go to Tools >> Export in left side bar of Dashboard . It will download a .xml file to your computer . This         .xml file is also called backup of blog , wxr file , RSS feed file .

3. Convert wordpress backup xml file  :- Now go to http://www.wordpress-to-blogger-                                    . This is a converter to convert wordpress backup xml file into blogger                         supported xml file . We need this because blogger does not support wordpress backup xml file . This 
    converter works best for the files of size upto 1 mb backup xml file .

  NOTE :- During Wordpress to Blogger shifting often most of the images get lost . It happened to me also  .                   I searched a lot to find a way to make my images visible again on blogger , but not found . Then i                     downloaded all the images from my hosting provider Hostgator and uploaded them again one by                   one . It is very typical if you have large number of posts images .

4. Import in blogger :- Now its time to login in blogger and go to Settings >> Other >> Backup >> Import .
    Thus we import the xml file that we converted before .

Now if you want to keep the same domain name on blogger also , you need to change the nameservers . For changing the nameservers follow this process -

 1. Go to the Blogger Dashboard >> Settings >> Basic >> Publishing Blog Address >> + setup a Third party url 
      >> Edit >> Type new domain and save .

2. Now you will get an error and cname values . These cname's are NameServers . Copy these 
    nameservers address .

3. Now go to the your Domain Registrar  where your domain is registered like Godaddy , Bigrock etc and            look for the link for update or change the Nameservers . Paste Blogger Nameserves here and update .

4. Within next 24-48 hours , your new domain will start to point your Blogger Blog .

Thus using these steps , you can transfer your blog from wordpress to blogger and give a minute to share this blog post if it really helped you .
