The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition #1

The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition is now online.

All I did was run a script from the WordPress Dashboard - Import. It was predictable, and simple.

  • Indicate Blogger as my blog host.
  • Backup settings in blogs being imported.
  • Log out of Blogger, from the Dashboard.
  • Log in to Blogger, thru the Import script.
  • Select the blog to be imported, from my Blogger blog list.
  • Watch and pray.
  • This blog is not terribly large, just a few pictures (no, actually just 1), and maybe 50 posts. It took a good 5 minutes, with a nice console type display showing what was going on.
  • The Import script finished, and that was that.


Having finished, I now have a blog in WordPress. That being said, it's just a blog.

All in all, a brief and disappointing exercise. It's pretty - check it out. But there's lots more to be done, before The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition can be seen as a mirror to The Real Blogger Status / Blogger Edition.

See The Real Blogger Status / WordPress Edition #2 for the continuing experience.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
