Transferring from blogger/blogspot to joomla

So, I'm hoping to make a website for myself, which I want this blog to be a part of. But how to do it. Well, at first I thought I'd just have it as a feed, but actually I want to incorporate it fully into the joomla site. So.... here's what i found on the amazing thing called the internet:

Found on this forum

  1. Export xml from blogger
  2. import to wordpress
  3. export from wordpress to joomla
Looks like wordpress is the go-between. Not found anything more recent then 2009, so maybe there is a straight blogger to joomla extension?

Found a how to website with information on the wordpress to joomla conversion. Need to install JoomBlog extension.

Also found this blog on how to do it. Costs $15 to by feed2post though

Just had a quick search on the extensions directory for joomla and found this PLo Blogger, which duplicates blogs on your joomla site onto your blogger site. This would be a good way to have them both up and running, and not loose any followers and such.

The question is: Is it worth the hassle? Perhaps keep blogger going, and make a new blog for other things on the joomla site. Might be the best thing to do?


  1. Thanks! It will really help me a lot regarding with my joomla transferring here for more information

  2. HI! I'd like to recommend you automated tool for your Tumblr migration. I used cms2cms -
    It works really flawless and fast, i migrated about 2500 elements in 17 minutes:) You don't have to install any plugins or other tools, there just a few steps in the wizard. Also, this tool requires your wordpress installation and all the actions to proceed with the theme setup and other utilities you want to possess on your blog.

    I really recommend this migration tool!
