I have decided to take the plunge. I have done web design in the past, therefore have not been happy with the restrictions placed upon my blog using blogger. I have done several redesigns, and just can not seem to get it right.

I also don't like that my page has no depth. I have to try and cram everything onto the front page rather than multiple pages so my readers can see what they want without the clutter.

I have some experience in this, I helped co-author and design Absolute Prelude as well as Ohio Prelude Owners Community several years back. Both of these were done a Php BBS so this should not be too hard.

There is the issue of the posts I have made on blogger which brings me to my question. Is there an easy way to import these into the wordpress software or do I have to copy and paste each one over?

I know that if I go to wordpress.com it will copy my posts and comments off blogger. My concern is losing the comments and everything from posts. I don't have many but want to keep the ones I have! :D

I am going to be taking several weeks to set this up as I want it right before re-directing to it, so any advice from anyone that has done this in the past is very much welcomed!
