How I changed from Blogger to Wordpress

  If you've been over to my blog in the last week or so, or noticed a change in the email format, it's because I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress! I've wanted to do it for a while. I actually did quite a bit of research on it a little over a year ago. But, I put it on the back burner.
