The whole process of moving from Blogger to WordPress and setting up an Ecommerce site has definitely been more difficult than it should have been for me, but I wanted to share with you this link to a YouTube video that was tremendously helpful. There are services that will do this for you if you don’t want to spend the time, but in just over an hour, this guy walks you through the process of how to set up a WordPress site, backup your Blogger blog, move content over, and redirect your links. Totally helpful. Check him out.
So why make the move? For me, the main reason I wanted to make the move was so that I could have both a blog and ecommerce capabilities in the same site. A lot of the sites that I was coming across that had both a blog and ecommerce together were wordpress powered, so that’s why I decided to move. However, WordPress is NOT a particularly user-friendly interface, and it definitely has required a lot more time learning than I had originally anticipated. I’m happy with how it looks now, but I probably would never have finished if not for videos like this one. You really can learn anything on youtube.
Have you made the switch? Do you have any tutorials you’d like to share that were helpful to you?
