Since Blogger is going to stop supporting FTP account blogs like this one on May 1, I need content management solution. I’m leaning in the direction of WordPress.

Some questions:

  • If I import my existing Blogger content is there a way to get WordPress to retain the same URLs.
  • If WordPress cannot retain the same URLs, should I leave the existing, Blogger created pages up? Should I still import the old posts anyway, resulting in six years worth of double posts?
  • How long should I budget to make the conversion from Blogger to WordPress?

Also, I’ll likely be redesigning the site for the first time in over 4 years. I am inclined to design it in PhotoShop CS2, but have never done anything like that — how involved is that process and how much time should I budget for it?
