  1. Thanks Satish for this excellent guide to migrating from Blogger – I shall pass this on to a couple of friends who are on Blogger.

    Personally, I really don’t understand why anyone would even want to go with Blogger in the first place when WordPress is so well established and there is so much support for it.

    Very good question. I think many people goes to Blogger because of the ease of use for a newbie. As time proceeds, the the blogging experience teaches him that it is not but a blog allows many features [SEO……etc] !!
