HOW TO: MIGRATE FROM BLOGGER TO WORDPRESS

Since moving TE to this swanky new layout, I’ve had an awful lot of people ask me questions on how to migrate from Blogger to WordPress, and a fair few start to do it for themselves. It is truly a very simple process. There are a few tricks I picked up to make sure everything goes smoothly, but it’s really not something that people need to pay to have done for them. Why have someone do for you something you can do yourself?

I don’t know that I did everything perfectly, but it’s worked for me and I’ve seen no loss in traffic or advertising revenue since I made the change, which really, is all I could ask for!

DEAR BLOGGERS, LOVE FROM A PR X

Dear Bloggers,

You are part of the most exciting industry of our time. You are beautiful and brilliant and create incredible content that brings warmth and humour into the lives of your readers. You have changed the way media is consumed. You have the power to kill off the print version of Vogue and you have transformed the nature of e-commerce. But, basic niceties of business are lost on too many. I have so much time for people who protect the integrity and vision of their site. But, more and more it seems bloggers are expecting an awful, awful lot from PRs, without reciprocating. So, dear bloggers, help me to help you…
