I was provided a copy of this course for free to facilitate this review.
I have always been curious as to how people move from blogger to wordpress and many of my blogging friends seem to be doing it. I was very fortunate to have my husband point me towards wordpress when I first started my blog and I am most grateful for the hassle free tech support he provides 🙂
Last month a blog friend and I were talking about moving her to wordpress from blogger and that I was more than happy to help her as she works off her ipad so it is a bit tricky to do this herself. We decided to revisit this in the new year.
Then this review opportunity popped up! I get to learn the how to AND help my friend out, woohoo!
I went ahead and ordered the course one morning while being up at 5am. (You know how kids are!) and began reading.
I love how Deby setup this course! I can say right now that if you can read and follow instructions as laid out in various videos throughout this course you CAN easily move your blog by yourself with no hassles at all.
The hardest part is going to be choosing a color for your theme!
In this course you are given step by step instructions on how to back up your blogger account, set up a wordpress site with detailed info on where to get hosting, a domain name and even a crash course on how to use wordpress.
The course also includes a free theme and how to do a quick setup.
I especially love that you are given a list of awesome plugins to get you started in having a fully functional wordpress site.
I went through the course content before starting the transfer (as advised) to know what I was going to be doing and to settle my fears of accidentally erasing my friends entire blog! (no worries, there are steps to back up! in case you change your mind too)
I have high praise for the video how to’s, seeing someone walk you through it is much easier than following written instructions, for me anyways.
