Moving Posts To Blogger From Other Platforms...

Hey y'all!  Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

This is one of those posts that will be of ZERO interest to you if you do not maintain a blog.  And, probably not of any interest if you do.  Just sayin'...

I was over at a Blog-buddy's place, and he's thinking about going to something free (read The Globber) to host his glob.  He, along with thousands of other bloggers, is questioning whether to keep up a blog, chuck it, or at least go "no charge."

Now, as The Wrongness of The Gooble Czar™, I have well chronicled just how WRONG The Gooble is here at Andy's Place.  (BTW, I've got some good things to say about The Gooble, and their war with the Chinks...but that's for a later post)  But, I must say that I've got ZERO quarrel with their product, The Globber!  I have found it to be just peachy, with almost zero problems.  So, when I started doing a The Gooble Search©, to see if I could give him some advice about loading all his posts and junk into the Cyber U-Haul, and carting them over to The Globber, I was astounded.  Really.

Man!  You oughta see all the Globber-haters out there on the worldwide computer!!!  Heck, maybe they've all got REALLY high expectations of free junk.  Dunno.  But, it really surprised me.

So, on to the search.  At left you will see The Gooble Search© I did.  If you click on it, you will note that there is not one single search result that mirrors my search for "moving posts to blogger from other platforms."

Every single one in the top 10 is about moving from The Globber to other platforms.   That pattern repeats page, after page, after page, in The Gooble Search© results.

So, I decided to do a post entitled "Moving Posts To Blogger From Other Platforms."  After many days minutes of research, I conclude that I don't think you can do it.  Once you start out with a pay to post dealie, The Globber wants to punish you for your reckless financial decisions, I guess.  Of course, I could be wrong, and you can do it.  I don't know.

I know that this is of no help to anyone at all.  But, I just figure that in a day or two, Andy's Place will be #1 on the thousands of The Gooble Searches© for folks looking to make a change, and searching for, "Moving Posts To Blogger From Other Platforms."

Trust'll happen.

I own The Gooble!  So, welcome to all y'all thousands of new visitors!  Y'all come back now, ya' hear!!!


  1. I've had some fellow, non-google using bloggers suggest that I switch to Wordpress or some other such product. After a bit of research, and the realization that it would cost money, I decided it wasn't worth the hassle.

    I don't either of my readers minded.

  2. I started a Wordpress blog just to see how well it would work back in the day when Blogger did not do trackbacks. I hated it. Of course, Blogger still does not do trackbacks the way other platforms do, but I like the backlinks better actually.

    Google "from (whatever platform) to Blogger" and there are many posts on it. Wordpress to Blogger is a cakewalk according to most posts, too.

  3. Um, I moved from WordPress to Blogger. So, yes, it can be done.

    The question is, "How much word do you want to go through?" 'Cause while moving from Blogger to WordPress is easy, moving from WordPress to Blogger is a pain, if you have more than 1 MB of posts.

    If someone is moving from a paid platform to a free platform, then the easiest is form most-anything to (WordPress free hosted blogging)

    The question there is, "Are you comfortable with the restrictions?"

    And, as easy as it is, notice that I still went with Blogger.

  4. Blogger has its moments but it's hard to beat "free."

    Apropos of nothing... I keep wondering when I'm gonna run out of image space. Having been in the IT biz I know disc farms don't come cheap. How Google can offer each of their subscribers 7.5 gigabytes of FREE g-mail storage and an undetermined amount of FREE blogging space is beyond me. But I'll take it.

    wv: bedis. As in "Bedis where I usually am at this hour."


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
