I am looking for recommendations. I have read many many articles across the web but they are not from actual bloggers.
Do you have a hosted or self-hosted blog?
Why did you choose what you did and have you since thought about changing anything including the actual host?
With WordPress, there is a way to import your posts, and comments received. With Blogger, I believe you can export those. That would be the file to transfer/ import.
Sometimes Blogger generated URLs do not transfer well, so you may have to install and use the plugin called Redirection.
You will definitely have to gear your layout's theme to be able to use WordPress. If you want to keep your current layout, I could take a look at and insert the WordPress script needed for your theme to function correctly.
If you have any questions, just send a message to me. I actually was going to do a tutorial on my site WPAddict.net about this. I work a lot with my own clients and they have enjoyed WordPress.
