Anybody care to weigh in on this? I'm considering using WordPress so that I can have a bit more functionality, and I've heard a lot of good things about it.

How easy is it to migrate all of my date (layout, posts, pretty much my entire sidebar) over there? Will I have to put in a lot of work to make it happen? Minimal?


Any tips greatly appreciated!

If you are using Wordpress.com as opposed to self-hosted Wordpress, consider the fact that you may be losing some widget functionality since WP doesn't accept JavaScripts on their site. This will make features like Entrecard and Wowhead tooltips not available.

I've found WP to be a bit easier on the backend management. Because all the layout is already pre-formatted, there's little need to do any coding. It's a simple cut-and-paste for sidebar content using specific widgets. Migrating posts are also not a problem. I've migrated posts from my old blog with no problem.

Hm, that sounds like it'll be a deciding factor. I use Entrecard and Wowhead tooltips pretty often.

But right now I'm working on making Lightbox work with Blogger, and I have it working for every browser except IE7. I don't want to purposefully navigate people away from my site.
