WordPress.. what?

blogger to wordpress

I’m not going to lie. Migrating Blogger to WordPress yourself is no joke.

I wanted to cry. I wanted to sleep. But I have never left my blog in state where it’s not 100% okay.

Maybe I picked the wrong day to migrate Blogger to WordPress because:

  1. It’s my first day of menses, and;This headache is killing me!

But I’m just so excited and my blog is 40% done. 50% is posts, and the other 10% is just finishing touches.

I emailed Bloglovin’ about my Blogger to WordPress feed but I haven’t heard back from them yet. It is Thanksgiving and the automated e-mail responseย said they’ll get back to me on Sunday because they’re on holiday.

I’m not sure if any of you are reading this since my feed is all fucked up but if you do, please say hi. I’m losing my sanity. I should have hired someone to do this for me. I’m feeling awful.

But do you want a first impression kind-of of WordPress migration? I can definitely do that. Next week.

After I’m done with a hundred and fifty posts.

PS: I installed Disqus! Now leaving a comment has never been easier!

  • wow! its like going into a whole different world. cantiknya erin! ๐Ÿ˜€ now, you make me feel to move to wordpress juga T__T

    • ikr! wordpress best fatina! 100x better than blogger ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Oh goodness, seriously need to move from blogger to wordpress but I’m still doing some research on how to move the post and whatnot, hopefully, if I’m stuck or I don’t know something, hopefully, you will be okay, if I ask you hihi ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Of course! Tak susah sangat pun sebenarnya. Yang susah when kena format balik post. Kadang kadang takde line spacing la apa la but kalau taknak format pun takpe. Yang lain semua ok je. Kalau nak migrate kan, better now than later. Erin menyesal tak migrate awal awal dulu. wordpress best!

          • tapikan Erin, if I move to wordpress using yg free punya dulu, boleh ke migrate all the post? sebab rancang macam bulan 1 baru nak beli domain tu ๐Ÿ™‚

          • boleh jugak tapi kira mcm kena buat dua kerja tau. Blogger to WordPress.com. Lepastu WordPress.com to WordPress.org. Yang orang selalu pakai tu, WordPress.org like I’m using right now. WordPress.org bukan beli domain tau, dia beli hosting and dalam package tu mostly dia bagi free domain. i’m paying rm60/year for domain + hosting dekat netkl.com

            pening siqah baca komen ni. Hihi

          • hahaha senang cerita, wordpress.com macam blogger jugak cuma lagi banyak kena keluar duit kalau nak guna features dia while blogger free je.

            wordpress.org yang erin pakai ni pulak, lain dari blogger and wordpress.com. wordpress.org kira mcm kita jaga website sendiri, storage sendiri, security sendiri semua lah ๐Ÿ™‚

          • haha now I get it, ignore my previous comment, Erin ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Congratulations on the move. I hope my answer on your question on my blog post helped you in a way. Hehe! I also want to reuse Disqus on my WordPress blog since I’ve been using it on Tumblr and Blogger but I got difficulties and problems during the comment migration from Blogger to WordPress and what’s worse, it was very exhausting to the point, I decided to just use the default comment system. However, this isn’t to discourage you to use Disqus. Every comment system has its pros and cons, anyway.

    Good luck on WordPress! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much! Yes it did! x

      The comment migration was a breeze for me. I installed Disqus on WordPress and let it sync all my comments. Not sure about past posts though but it did say it has synced 2415 comments and I have roughly around that number for my Blogger comments.

      • As for me, I was already a user of Disqus when I was still blogging on Blogger and then when I moved to WordPress, I tried to migrate it but it was no use. I had to edit all the links of my imported posts on WordPress into Blogger format links.

        • Oh my. It must be annoying!

          • It definitely was and what’s worse, my Disqus comments went missing even though it was originally on Blogger. That’s why my comments from Blogger are gone. ๐Ÿ™

          • this is why i held off using disqus on blogger. blogger doesn’t sync with disqus anymore.

    It was so hard to access you erinnn! i’ve missed you sooooo much already. this is amazing, everything is amazing, your template, your posts etc. i hope you are happy with WordPress <3

    • I’ve missed you too!!!!! thank you so much! yes i’m happy with WordPress! rasa macam blogger jauh already haha sedih pulak T.T

      • Lenne Zulkiflly

        haha no such thing. btw, macam mana nak keep updated dgn your posts lepasni kalau you dah migrate gi WordPress?

        • i think you can get my feeds from Blogger dashboard jugak lah. I did the setup and all cuma i tak post anything new lagi so cannot test. papeun bloglovin’ ada haha don’t worry

          • Lenne Zulkiflly

            i see.. eh yaaaas bloglovin’ got my back haha

  • Your new layout looks nice ๐Ÿ™‚ I can imagine the pain and stress moving everything out from blogger to wordpress. It’s like moving house lol.

    p/s: Is it just my eyes because I think the post content font is small?

    • it was painful but i pull through lol.
      it is quite small actually. i have so many things to sort before i can focus on my blog aesthetic haha. but will be changing it!
