Moving from Blogger to WordPress
Moving from Blogger to WordPress is a decision thats easy to take, but can be very difficult to implement. Or atleast lots of courage is required to start the procedure. Maintaining the Google Juice (PR, visitors, links etc.) is of prime importance. I am moving from http://thephotoshopper.blogspot.com to my own domain at http://designcranium.com
I have decided to finally move this blog over to wordpress. Contemplating for a long time (read many months), and going through tutorial after tutorial had left me confused and hopeless. Here are some links to help you get to those walkthrough’s faster…

- Amit’s guide on “Digital Inspiration”
A very detailed guide along with a video screen-cast. Seems to work for many people, but didnt work for me… Do give it a read though. It tries to run a PHP script on the wordpress side which converts the blogger URL to wordpress URL.
