- Moving my blog - worth the effort?

Currently, my website includes a blog, using blogger.com but using my
own space at my web host. As some of you know, I'm having some issues
I'm considering the advantages and disadvantages of using a free blogger
service, and going to managing my own, perhaps with WordPress or similar
A quick wander through installation instructions talks about needing to
set up a database, mentions MySQL and phpMyAdmin... My web host includes
WordPress in the list of free apps it makes available.
I'm almost completely ignorant about databases. I can build something
that works in MSAccess, but that's about it, and I once did something
with some SQL version so long ago that this is all I remember: I once
did something with some version of SQL, round about 1989 or so.
I'm also ignorant about php as well, though I have a book on it.
Given that, how hard would it be for me to create and maintain a
WordPress blog? How hard would it be for me to move my current
blogger.com data into WordPress - can it be done?
Any help, advice, answers, or links to these are appreciated.
Oh, and I hope you all enjoyed your New Year's Eve and weren't/aren't
too hung over today!
Re: Moving my blog - worth the effort?
If you want WP, it's pretty easy steps depending on your environment.
What's your control?
Your mention of freebie app, mysql and phpadmin suggests cpanel/fantastico.
If that's so, you don't have to worry too much about knowledge of setup and
Let me know what you got and i can do a walkthrough with you.
The install's easy, the dump of your blogger data's a small tricky part, but
no big thing.
