Converting Posts to Wordpress

I apologize in advance for the title of this post, as it's a bit misleading. I try to track what my visitors are searching for and I noticed recently that a few have been using the search terms "converting blogger to wordpress.

This is just a short post to let you know that it can be done. Wordpress has a plugin that lets you slurp in your's blog posts into Wordpress. I haven't actually used it, but apparently it's rather easy. The reason I haven't used it is as follows:
  • I wanted to maintain my old domains/URLs because of a reasonable amount of search engine traffic.
  • Some search engines penalize you for duplicate content. So if you do replicate your posts into Wordpress, just don't have any direct or indirect links between the two domains.

For those of you inclined to do so, however, there are instructions on either the site or with the plugin in question. I'll try to do a bit of research in this matter and post later on it.
