Can I move my blogspot blog to dreamhost?

apps

#1

Hi,
I have had a blogspot blog for sometime and am wondering if I can move or publish my blog on my own website through dream host?

I’ve read through some threads here but didn’t find the answers I was looking for.

#1 do I have to have a wordpress blog to import?
or
#2 can my current blogger blog be republished on my domain?

if yes, how?
simply

Thank you
Rebecca

One option is to switch to a wordpress blog and use the wordpress importer to import your existing blog into your new website. Wordpress provides information about that here…

I’m not familiar with Blogspot itself so I don’t know how easy it would be to continue using Blogger and just move the blog itself to DreamHost. Other users may have more knowledge of that.

Don’t forget that you’ll have to have a domain for your blog. Seeing how you already have one, you can set up something like blog.rebeccag.com.

I see that your site already has a blog feed. Wordpress also provides an RSS feed, so you’ll still have that feature. You can import your Blogspot posts into Wordpress:
