Moving from a blog hosted on blogger to wordpress is a huge adjustment. It is well worth the change, but it’s important to understand the financial cost before you begin your journey.
The cost of a wordpress blog:
- Cost of a wordpress theme approx. $75-$90. Free themes are available, but you will need some knowledge of CSS & HTML.
- Cost of professional content migration from blogger to wordpress, approx. $100-$150. You could attempt this yourself, but may lose followers or PR.
- Hosting: Prices vary by host, approx. $110-$120 per year with a dedicated IP address or $85-$95 per year without.
- Design changes: Cost varies widely, look to spend at least $50. You do not have to change your design.
There are several options for web hosting. Below are the 3 sites that have been recommended to me:
