How to transfer Blogspot or Blogger Blogs to Wordpress

How to import a BlogSpot blog into WordPress

If you have a blog at blogspot.com and decide to switch your hosting to wordpress.com or a self-hosted WordPress blog you can import all the posts, images and comments by using the WordPress Import feature. The automated process also has import functions for LiveJournal, Posterous, Splinder, Israblog, Movable Type and TypePad, Yahoo!360°, Blogli, Vox.com, Tumblr, or another WordPress blog hosted elsewhere.
I’ve used this process for Blogger but not the others. Although all the posts and comments get transferred, widgets in the sidebar are ignored. You would have to re-create those from scratch. Blogger ‘Labels’ are preserved as WordPress ‘Categories’.
To start the process go to the WordPress admin area and choose
Tools > Import. Then choose which blogging system you want to import from.
Please note: To use the importer with Blogger you must have a Google account and an upgraded blog. If you have an old-style Classic template you will need to switch to the new Blogger system (screenshot). The blog must be hosted on BlogSpot, not externally via FTP.
Step 1 – Authorize the transfer:
It would be helpful to login to your Google Account before you begin the import process. Then you can simply click the “Grant access” button and continue.

Step 2 – Select a blog to import:
If you have more than one blog attached to a single Blogger account all of them will be listed with an “Import” button for each blog. The example below shows just one.

Step 3 – Author mapping:
On Blogger you have one username, and on WordPress another username. The author mapping process allows you to establish an association between the two usernames.

Once these 3 steps have been completed the import proceeds automatically.

An experience of importing 2000+ posts

I was contacted by Kenny Smith, who wanted to replace a  pre-Blogger-in-Beta blog on his self-hosted site. He sent a write-up of his experience:
“My Blogger blog was on an FTP-hosted site, so the first step was to temporarily convert that to Blogspot. That was easy to do inside the Blogger platform. I had more than 2,000 posts to move over to WordPress which was a problem because Blogger is capping the export at 500 posts now. Trial, error and Google searches taught me that I could export the whole thing to a WordPress hosted blog. So I simply created a MYURL.wordpress.com and exported everything from MYURL.blogspot.com – This was effortless.
The next problem, though, came when I tried to export to a hosted http://www.myurl.com/wordpress/ site. The step is to save the data from the myurl.wordpress.com site on your machine as an XML file. This is easily done within the WordPress platform. The problem was in trying to export that from desktop to http://www.myurl.com/wordpress/ After two days in tech support conversations with the WordPress folks (who were VERY helpful) we decided that my ISP was timing me out. So what I would see after trying to export 2,000 posts would be 1,734 or 1,722 or 1,755. This got frustrating quickly. Especially while deleting them all, 15 posts at a time.
The answer is a fairly simple one… … Take that XML file and segregate the data, perhaps by months or years if you’re dealing with thousands of posts, into several XML files to prevent the time out. WordPress’ tech people helped me break mine down into three XML files instead of the one I’d been trying and it all uploaded on the first attempt thereafter.
And now, the only really problem I have is an issue of the dates. Everything is written like it took place one day later than it really did. However, I seem to have 2,053 posts on the wordpress site, and I was trying to import 2,055. 99.9 percent is a nice success rate thanks to this extra step in the workaround and a little help from Nick at WordPress.”

Why switch to WordPress.com?

On another site there’s a table which summarizes the features of the two systems: WordPress vs. BlogSpot.
Advantages:
  • Quite a few BlogSpot features added after 2006 depend on JavaScript. They won’t show up in older types of mobile device or browsers in which JavaScript is disabled. Google services rely heavily on client-side scripts which add significantly to download times. Outside towns and cities in America, Europe, and wealthy countries in South East Asia, broadband penetration has been minimal. Elsewhere, it’s confined to major cities (ditto for mobile broadband coverage). A 2007 article in PC World magazine noted that Rural America is doomed to Dial-Up. It looks like Google only cares about catering to city slickers in prosperous nations.
     
  • Photo bloggers get a better deal with WordPress.com. In individual posts you can add a photo gallery with a single tag. You can also use a Photoblogger Theme. There are several to choose from.
     
  • There’s always the risk that Google may require users to set up a Google+ account (real names mandatory) in order to continue using the Blogger service.
Disadvantages:
  • I got fed up with a constant stream of spam comments for deletion in my WordPress dashboard. Especially as there were very few genuine comments for moderation. It’s true that if you ignore the Akismet spam queue they’ll be deleted automatically after a while, but it’s difficult to ignore them as a few might have been falsely tagged as spam.
     
  • Blogger makes it easy to change fonts and colors in every theme. None of them are restricted to a limited set of options.
     
  • It has been said elsewhere, but the dashboard Blog Stats don’t really compare to free third-party tracker scripts such as StatCounter and Google Analytics. The graph looks nice, but it’s done with a script so you can’t right-click to save it.

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna  A twist on lasagna!

When I saw a recipe for Buffalo chicken lasagna I was really excited! But once I read the recipes I found online I felt like none were what I really wanted. As I usually do, I took the idea and made my own unique version. And it rocks. And because I'm awesome I share my recipes.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounce cream cheese
1 cup buffalo wing sauce
Hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco) - optional
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I baked chicken tenders in the oven covered with foil at 350 for 25 minutes)
1/2 cup ranch dressing
8 ounce package of shredded mozzarella cheese
Lasagna noodles, cooked according to package directions

Directions:
In a medium pot, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat until butter is melted. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Cut the cream cheese into cubes and add to the pot. Stir well until completely melted then add in the buffalo sauce and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce to taste. Spoon a small amount of the buffalo and cream cheese sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish and spread it around to cover the bottom of the dish. Stir the chicken into the sauce in the pot.
Place one layer of lasagna noodles in the bottom of the dish. Spread half of the chicken mixture over the noodles then drizzle with half of the ranch dressing. Add another layer of noodles and then the remaining chicken and ranch dressing. Place a final layer of lasagna noodles and then spread the cheese over the top.
Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing and maybe some carrot and celery sticks.

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

Tip: Not everyone likes blue cheese. I hateeeeee it! So I really recommend using ranch in the recipe unless you're 100% sure that everyone who will be eating this lasagna likes blue cheese. The blue cheese lovers can use the dressing on their lasagna and even top it with blue cheese crumbles.

Gift Ideas for Husband Anniversary

I love being creative and coming up with new and different ideas for my husband for our anniversary. We have been together 14 years so coming up with new ideas is kind of a small challenge. This year we decided to just do a small beach trip with the kids to Amelia Island,but I still wanted to make something special for my husband. I came up with an inexpensive lottery gift basket.
       I bought $14 worth of scratch tickets (diff quantities like a $1 $2 $5 tickets) to add up to the number of years we were together. I also got a pick 3 ticket for 50cents which was our anniversary date 6-10 June 10th...
I also bought a payday candybar for $1 and an 8 pk of mini 100grand candybars for $1 at Dollar General. I had the heart gift basket at home. I taped the tickets to my kids krazy straws and stuck in the baskets at different heights to make it "pop"... I bought a mini $1 helium I love you ballon...printed a couple pics of us through the years off and included on the balloon and around the basket. I made an "I hit the jackpot when I met you" sign out of foam paper and puffy paint. You can easily print off a sign at home or make one out of regular paper/art paper and markers. You can also say "I hit the lottery when I met you" or "I got LUCKY when I married you"... whatever you prefer!
I had some casino chips I placed for esthetics and I found a 6 of hearts and added our wedding date to the card 6-10-2000...

I spent total $18 on this gift ..... he won $2 lol but we are in a second chance drawing through the Margaritaville ticket for some awesome prizes! Keeping my fingers crossed.

If you have any questions about my posts please contact me klozetmonkey@yahoo.com

Glow Bath Water for kids

This idea is SUPER cool and unique. Can't wait t try it for my daughter. PLEASE make sure to use NON TOXIC highlighters with this idea.  Making glow water is simple!  All you need are non-toxic yellow highlighters and water. You can find 2-packs of jumbo highlighters at Target for under $1.00.  Pop the back off of the marker and pull out the ink soaked felt that is inside.  Then run the felt under a small stream of water with a bowl underneath to catch it.  I used roughly 6 cups of water per highlighter, and ended up with insanely bright glow water.  It could definitely be diluted further, but I wanted it to GLOW!  
- See more at: http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2012/02/glowing-water-uses-and-how-to-make-it.html#sthash.3zkhUES1.dpufUSE two yellow highlighters to make this bath.  However, the water could have been diluted a lot more, and still would have glowed.    I held the highlighter sponge directly under the running bath water.  .  If the label does not specifically say non-toxic, I would not use them.

If using highlighter water in the bath makes you uncomfortable you can also substitute tonic water to give you a COOL BLUE glow.  Tonic is 100% edible, safe for kids, and even meant for ingestion.  One two liter will give you insanely bright water


All you need to make glowing bath paint is shaving cream and fluorescent or glow in the dark paint - See more at: http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2012/02/glowing-homemade-bath-paint.html#sthash.BqCd6EI3.dpuf

Make your own Shower Curtain

Great idea for a kids bathroom. Buy a cheap plain white shower curtain...Dollar tree carries them for a dollar in my neck of the woods! Use finger paints,paint brushes,puffy paint... Let the kids design their own theme. You can always use it for a short while and change it up when you want because it is so inexpensive!

DIY DOODLE PAINT for Kids

This is such a fun craft to do with your kids! The doodle paint is made with ingredients that most of you already have in your cabinets…so what can be better than that?! The paint is super easy to make and my kids absolutely LOVED doodling with it! The paint dries with a glittery sheen and has a puffy, raised texture to it.
Here’s a list of everything you’ll need on hand to create this fun doodle paint:
- Squeeze bottles for the paint: I used 6oz. bottle from Wilton (you can get these in the chocolate making section of any craft store…I found mine at Jo Ann Fabrics they were about $2 for 2 bottles)
- Flour
- Salt
- Water
- Coloring: You can use tempera paint (wet or dry), food coloring or natural coloring agents such as beet juice, raspberry or blueberry juice reduction, etc. For mine, I used Wilton’s gel food coloring because they already come in almost any color imaginable (plus I already had them in my cabinets and I loved the concept of keeping everything non-toxic – or edible – too! You just never know…kids are crazy)!
- Glass/Plastic bowls
- Spoons/Whisks
- Funnel: optional…but it helps with getting the paints into the squeeze bottles

Here are the simple instructions:
Follow these instruction for each paint color you’d like to create!
In a bowl, mix equal parts: Flour, Water & Salt. I used 1/2 cup of each and it worked really well for the squeeze bottles I had. Mix this really well with a spoon or whisk…no clumps. You can add more or less water depending on the consistency of paint you’d like, but it seemed that an equal (or just barely less) amount of water worked the best. Once that mixture is blended well, add a smidgen of coloring…and by smidgen …I mean smidgen! The more coloring you add, the more vibrant your paints will be. Get creative here…you can create a light pink and a dark pink paint by using the same coloring…just add more or less of the color depending on the shades you want to create! You can even blend colors together to create unique colors or other colors you may not have on hand – this might require Kindergarten art theory 101 (red+blue=purple), but you can handle it! Once the paint is blended with the coloring, use your funnel to pour each paint color into it’s own squeeze bottle. The paint is then ready to be put into the hands of your little Picassos. I love the fact that this paint is non-toxic and it can be made at the drop of a hat on a rainy day!
Word to the wise…this paint works best if you use a thicker paper (or even posterboard) to doodle on – because of it’s water base, it might soak the paper if it’s in the hands of a wiley toddler!
 
Print these labels for your bottles!

Hot Lemon and Honey Water

Wow I just tried this today and it is AMAZING tasting...and Great for your health and ridding toxins.. My mom kept bugging me to buy a lemon and try this for our ongoing allergies and sickness and i'll let ya know if it works.. Its all natural and easy to make.


Try it instead of a cup of tea or add to your tea..

thoroughly WASH your lemon and cut a couple slices off...
Boil or Microwave tea for a few minutes and THEN place the slices in the cup
Let sit for 4 or 5 minutes to infuse the water...REMOVE slices
Sweeten with a teaspoon of honey..or sugar. I used HONEY and it tastes awesome!!

Hope it makes me feel better if not it tastes like hot lemonade!

BENEFITS OF THIS EASY DRINK

Some foods that people include in their diets contain toxins. Toxins are just as the word indicates, an array of chemicals, metals, or pesticides in food. When these foods are ingested, the body attempts to fight the invaders by manufacturing antibodies. These toxins keep a body working overtime and, ultimately, expose it to illness. An additional negative side effect to the ingestion of toxins is that fat burns slower in an effort to dilute the toxins.
Hot water with lemon aids in flushing away harmful toxins. As a result of the reduced level of toxicity, a person's skin can clear and appear healthier, problems with acne are reduced and the body can more efficiently burn excess fat. These are a few of the visual signs of toxic cleansing, but the most critical benefits are the ones not seen. The reduction of free radicals inside the body can make all the difference in a person's future health.


Warm water and lemon is also said to help with nausea, constipation, parasites, and other digestive issues. It aids in the digestion of food by stimulating the liver to increase its bile production, which prevents decomposing food from sitting too long in a person's body.

Lemon itself is a diuretic, which is a chemical that increases the rate of urination. As a result, lemons help with urinary tract infections and are also believed to aid in the dissolution of gallstones.
With all of the health benefits that water and lemon aid in, don't discount the fact that lemons also contain a great deal of vitamin C, which is well known for its ability to stimulate and strengthen the immune system. With a strong immune system, a person's body can more efficiently battle invading viruses.

DIY Crates


For Any Room
When you have literally run out of cupboard, desk or drawer space, it's time to think outside (or inside!) the box. In the kitchen, a wooden crate with character can be a great place to keep your favorite olive oil, balsamic vinegar and other key kitchen items you turn to regularly. Crates also make for convenient under-the-bed storage. Put one in the living room to fill with erstwhile coffee table books when you need more surface area for snacks on family movie night.

Mashed Potato Ball Recipe

Have left over mashed potatoes???? Make these yummy
Loaded Potato Bites
*Makes 18-24 bites depending on size

Ingredients:
- 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes...
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 2/3 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 strips bacon
- 1/3 cup scallions, chopped
- 1 egg
- 1 ¼ - 1 ½ cups Italian bread crumbs
- Oil for frying
- Salt and Pepper
- Ranch or Honey Mustard for dipping

Directions:

1. Take potatoes out of the fridge and let sit for a few minutes to take the chill off a bit. Meanwhile shred the cheese, chop scallions, and cook bacon then dice finely. Add potatoes and flour to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine well, then add cheese, bacon, and scallions. Take about a heaping tablespoon of mixture and roll with hands into a small ball. It if doesn’t hold its shape, add a little more flour to make the potatoes sturdy. Repeat until done.

2. Heat oil in a medium sauce pan – or use your fryer – over medium/medium high heat to about 350-375 degrees. Whisk egg into a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs in an additional bowl. Dip each ball in egg and then roll in bread crumbs until fully coated. Set aside on a sheet pan.

3. Test oil with one ball. The oil should bubble when potato is in oil and ball should take about 1-2 minutes to brown and cook through. (If takes longer the oil needs to be hotter, if it browned too quickly on the outside and the inside is still cold, the temperature needs to be lower.) Once oil is ready, add potato balls in small batches and fry for 1-2 minutes – it will depend on size. Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper lined plate to allow excess oil to drain off. Repeat until done.

4. Allow to cool for a minute or two and serve with dipping sauce.

EASY TACO DINNER BAKE

Need a Super Easy Dinner or #Potluck Dish to Share? Make a Delicious #Taco Ring! (Thanks PAM!)

2 crescent roll tubes
1 LB ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar che...ese
Shredded lettuce
1 or 2 diced tomatoes depending on size
1/2 small can Olives (sliced) (Avocado, Sour cream etc)

Directions
1. Separate the crescent pastry and lay out in a circle, pointed ends out on a foil lined pizza pan, sprayed very lightly with cooking spray. Use some of the leftover crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker as this will hold the meat.
2. Brown meat in a frying pan until no longer pink. Drain fat and add taco seasoning as directed on package, reducing the water to a scant 1/3 cup from the 1/2 cup called for. Drain excess liquid from meat.
3. Sprinkle meat mixture in a circle inside the crescent rolls, then sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over the meat. Pull crescent roll points over meat and cheese and tuck in.

Bake at 350 degrees until pastry is golden brown (30 min).

4. Add remaining 1/2 cup of cheese, chopped lettuce, tomato, black olives, and jalapenos (if using), into the middle of the ring, then add a few dollops of sour cream if desired, before serving.

How to make Homemade Perogies

Home-made Perogies

The dough recipe is really simple.
4 cups of flour
2 eggs...
1/2 teaspoon salt
about 1 cup of water
1/2 cup softened butter or margarine


For the filling you can get creative. The classic is mashed potatoes with a few cups of shredded cheese (to taste) mixed in while the potatoes are hot. You can also try potato and cottage cheese, jalapeno ones, ricotta and spinach, etc. If you’re doing the classic version, while your cheesey mashed potatoes are cooling, mix your dough. If the dough is too dry, add more water. Too wet? Add some flour.

Knead the dough about a hundred times to get the softest dough you've ever seen.

Roll out the dough onto some parchment paper. Don't roll too thin, you don't want holes in the dough, but too thick will make tough perogies. If you have a round cookie cutter, use to cut the dough into circles. If not, you can use a drinking glass to make circles. 
Place a spoonful of the cheesey potatoes onto the dough circles.
Fold the dough circle around the filling and pinch the edge closed.
Don't let the potato get in the way of the pinch, it won't stick properly.
Repeat until you've run out of dough (makes about 5 dozen perogies). This recipe uses about 8 large potatoes and a half brick of cheddar for the filling).
Be careful not to stack the little pouches of deliciousness as they are sticky.
Boil them in salted water until they float to the top, then drain. They freeze well after boiling and then when you are ready to eat you can re-heat or fry them in butter until slightly golden brown. You can also saute onions.

Just an idea of what other people did for the same style of party

For my fourteenth birthday, me and my five best friends had a girls night out party. For the invitations, I cut out a picture of each of my friends, made a little collage from magazine clippings of things they like, and wrote the party details on the back. I picked my friends up at 3:00 and then we went strait to the mall. Once we arrived there, we had an awesome scavenger hunt.  Earlier my mom had written down a list of fifteen items we had to find and buy, and a few pictures we had to take. For example, she had written down neon green nail polish and a keychain of a dog, or we had to take a picture of the store clerk smiling with our purchase in his hand.  We teemed up into two teams of three. Then, we were given the list, ten dollars, and a camera.  Mom told us to meed at the food court when we were done, and the first one there won. Next, we had a fashion show.  We went to a clothing store and had to pick out outfits from several categories like Dressed Up, Think Pink, and Totally Mismatched.  We didn't buy the outfits.  We just tried them on and took pictures.  Then, we all picked out matching shirts, took a group picture, and went back to the food court. We had dinner and headed home. Once home, we settled in for a sleepover. We watched a fun girly movie, played cards, and did each other's hair. Then, we went out to the local icecream parlor for dessert. We brought along a candle to put in my cone. Then, we went back home and giggled until we fell asleep.  The next morning, we went out to ihop in out pajamas for breakfast. For favors, they got to keep the the shirts and some of the stuff we bought during the scavenger hunt.  This was definitely a great party.
