Yes I figured it out though not till I stumbled a bit. I ended up restarting a few times. THe import was a bit difficult till I figured out the ftp stuff for Blogger.
Not sure if I ended up doing it the normal way but I made a sub-domain to import to instead of just a different directory.
I think it's alright now though.
One other question if anyone is listening: What can I do to get my pictures and links back on my archived posts? i lost all the links to flickr that were there before. Is this unavoidable? Not sure what i did wrong...Oh well.. at least it's working and from now on I'll have everything...
