Blogger issues - part 2

I've used Blogger as my authoring platform for the last five years or so. I've been contemplating making the change to WordPress for a bit now. There seem to be some good tools to migrate over, and maintain the permalinks for existing posts. My current issue with Blogger related pages is there inability to index properly (or what I would consider properly in Google). For example, I have written posts on "baby shower cards" and Corey Stroeder. The baby shower card post has a URL of http://www.joshgreene.com/2007/08/baby-shower-cards.html. However, Google seems to continually index my main URL, www.joshgreene.com, rather than the extended URL, which makes it difficult for someone coming through Google to see the exact post. There are links to the permalink URL, which makes this challenging to fix. More as I research it further.

Wordpress has a built in functionality that should allow you to import your posts and comments specifically from blogger. Dont recall where, but I remember seeing it in WP 2.0 so it is around :)

I use wordpress.org and I highly recommend it. I would move over and not look back. The hard decision is whether you use wordpress.com or wordpress.org. .com is for free hosted solutions with limitations on which plugins and templates you use. With .org, you've got to pay for hosting, but it gives you a huge amount of flexibility.

I think I saw a plugin which will migrate posts over.

Good luck and if you need any help, let me know.
