How to get my posts from to Blogger?

I want to migrate entries from to Blogger. Is there any easy way to do this?

I made the Blogger to switch a few years ago, but love the new Blogger interface. I find that being able to label posts is a lot less restrictive than Wordpress's categories.

Migrating to Wordpress was a flash. But, going the other way seems to be a problem.

I've tried to Google this, and most of the info out there seems to say that at the moment, this is impossible to do. I've found a couple of tools like blog2blog, but none have worked this far.

Oh technically inclined MeFites, please help.

P.S. I'm not technically inclined, so I really don't have a way to write a program or anything to do this.

Using the .xml format should allow you to tranfer your blog entries from one to another (I haven't try this myself but the process seems pretty straightforward):

Googeling (Googling?) "migrate from wordpress to blogger" (without the quotes) gets me a nice list of results.

I looked at this one, a second one, and a third one. All offer a slightly different solution, and since I haven't tried it I don't know if any or better than another.

Response by poster: @ddaavvviidd: Alas, I have already tried exporting an .xml file of my blog to Blogger. For some reason, Wordpress XML doesn't play nice with Blogger.

@theichibun: I've been to a few of those sites and tried those methods, but none of them seem to work for me.

Oh well, it was worth a shot. My old blog will have to live in Wordpress unless I decide to manually import it.

Please keep the suggestions coming, everyone.

You have noticed that Wordpress has tags, right?
