Blogger to WordPress Migration, With Redirects!

by admin on November 19, 2009

If you’re seeing this, I have migrated this blog both to WordPress as a platform and to my own domain. I never really knew what to do with, and the blogspot page was always my real home on the internet. I’m happy to say that everything has moved over nicely. I might take a hit in PageRank for a little while, but the important thing is that the old permalinks work. Here, try it:


To do the migration, I ended up using:

Granted, it took me forever to find the right combination of tools, but once I did it was easy. Hopefully this will make it easy for anyone who finds this on Google.

For those of you wondering about the theme, I shelled out the cash for Thesis, which is a pretty amazing premium WordPress theme. It lets you do a whole lot of painless tweaking and has some amazing features. Do check out their demo video if you’re interested. Many thanks to Darren Torpey for the recommendation. Hopefully I can return the favor by helping him migrate his Blogger site to WordPress!

Also, I’d like to thank everyone who contributed information when I wrote about my troubles migrating last month.

I’ll be tweaking the theme over the coming days, but for now you might want to take note of the handy “Effective Networking” tab at the top, which leads to my networking articles.

Hey Darius,

Congrats on the migration – the new theme looks great!

Glad it all seemed to go smoothly,

Looks great! I continue to rue the day I ever chose Moveable Type.

Where’s all the orange?

Spiffy, I like the looks, and congrats on the migration. I did similar a few months ago, and it was definitely worth it – hopefully you find it to be so too.

Also, Matthew: I cry for your soul. ;-)

Nice, but I am sorely missing the orange :sadface:

Well that’s a bit easier on the eyes anyway ;)
