After Google decided to discontinue Google Reader Wednesday, a few of us started getting a little worried about Blogger. It seems ridiculous to think they might get rid of that, but…wouldn’t you have said the same of reader?
If you want to move your blog, yet stay on Blogger, simply sign up for the new URL you want, export your old blog, then go to Settings > Other > Blog Tools on your new blog and select “Import blog.” All of your posts, including pictures and comments, will then be in both places. (This doesn’t delete the old blog, but you can do that afterward. Or keep it around, like I did.)
I don’t have screen shots of the import process on other platforms (wordpress, typepad) but it’s very similar.
