From Blogger to WordPress and Ninety Nine Ways is Born

For those of you who have known me for a little while my intentions of migrating from Blogger to WordPress should come as no surprise to you. This was a move I first thought about making months if not years ago but I just didn’t get around to actually doing it.

As you can see I have finally moved Show Me The Money over to WordPress and with the move came about a change in what the blog was all about. If you are interested you can read a bit more about it here. Coming to grips with the basics of WordPress wasn’t too much of a hassle because earlier in the year I did a little experiment and set up a phpBay site which has been going well. Whilst working on my phpBay sites (which I will write about in future posts) I was impressed by what WordPress had to offer and I was pretty much sold on the idea of migrating. The only reason it took a while from then, was because I was waiting to see if I could win myself a WordPress blog through Rocky’s competition. That wasn’t to be but it wasn’t something that was going to stop me from moving and I got the ball rolling.

The move was something I decided to go ahead and do by myself but there are a number of people out there who provide services to do the move for you (most of them charge a service fee). There were a few people who helped a great deal and either directed me towards tutorials on migrating, provided a few useful tips and tricks and answered any questions I had to the best of their ability. That being said, I would like to thank Martin – Creating an Awesome Home Business and Clement – Clement Nyirenda’s blog world .

    I don’t have a comparison because I haven’t seen your blogger site but your site now here in wordpress is great and easy to navigate. I’d say good move.

      That is fair enough – you never did get to see my blogger site. Anyhow, I’m glad you like the way the site looks. I hope to see you around again sometime soon.

    Better late than never. Congrats for making the move. Welcome to the WP family and thanks for the link love.

      Clement, you are right about that, better late than never. I must say that I am loving WP and no worries about the link love. See you around my friend.
