How do I move all the posts from a Blogspot account to my new blog?

My sister has been using a blogspot account for her travel journal. I just got a domain and am hosting it with Dreamhost. I set up Wordpress and my sister is ready to move to the new blog. However, she wants to move all of her old posts on Blogspot to to WP blog.

My question is, can this be done, and if so how?

If you're at your wp-admin page, there's a tab that says "Import," and then a link that says Blogger. Voila.

OK, I did that, and it works! Thanks everyone.

But there is one little thing, all of the images that were posted are not showing up on the new blog!

This is the blog. As you can see, it has the image paths, ie http://www.blogspot.....jpg, however they arent showing up, what gives?

You'll have to reupload your images to a different server and update the urls in your blog links as Blogger doesn't permit photos on their servers to be seen on non-Blogger.com sites

It's not an unreasonable policy as otherwise you would be using their storage capacity and bandwidth and in return, they would be getting nothing out of it.
