Ask a Blogger: Blogger to WordPress (Cost & Hosting)

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

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: 

  1. Cost of a wordpress theme approx. $75-$90.  Free themes are available, but you will need some knowledge of CSS & HTML.
  2. Cost of professional content migration from blogger to wordpress, approx. $100-$150.  You could attempt this yourself, but may lose followers or PR.
  3. Hosting:  Prices vary by host, approx. $110-$120 per year with a dedicated IP address or $85-$95 per year without.
  4. 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:

  1. Host Gator (my hosting)
  2. BlueHost
  3. Go Daddy
