Thanks for all your comments about how to import Blogger posts to WordPress. I found my way to the Import section and made all the correct clicks. And WP imported everything for two years up to the end of July. I think it doesn’t like the rest. Perhaps it’s not of a certain quality.

I have a huge learning curve--how to add all the bells and whistles that are eye candy for the attention deficit (like I am) or the links to shopping for the fiber addicted (like I am). If you have any suggestions about where to read, what to do, I'd be much obliged. And I'll post my new blog address when I have a little more figured out--still under construction at this point. Also I have made two posts in WP, and they are not sorting "newest post first." Any thoughts?

Yay for Wordpress! I picked it up really quickly and I'm sure you will, too.

I found the help Forums invaluable. Also the FAQ, but the Forums give more detail.

Feel free to email me with specific questions (runswithneedles at gmail dot com)

I also learned a lot by just fiddling with the template and seeing what happened.

Oh Darling, you need to check out Sidebar Widgets in the Wordpress forums. And make sure you choose a template that is sidebar widget enabled.

I found a nifty "quote of the day" thing and I figured out how to add a place for my ring codes, etc... If I can help at all, drop me an e-mail. I love me some wordpress now that I got over all the whacked out stuff at the beginning. Except that I wish there were an html coding view after I had already saved a post once... .but I digress.

Oh, and do you ahve the full version of wordpress that you have on yoru own server, or do you have the "free" one hosted on their server?

That's cool you're switching to WordPress. : ) I still haven't had time to even try that... though I've been researching it a bit.
