    Depends on what your blog is about.

    Anyway, you can start submitting to social bookmarking sites, posting in relevant forums, article submission and more.

    WP is good for SEO. Do you have a self-hosted domain?

    I think you can transfer (export) your blog post from your blogspot website to your new WP website

    Personally I use blogger and have enjoyed it. I am thinking about creating a word press blog as well, but when it comes to the serps using a blogger blog will not hold your blog back for example type in make money to google and the first site is a blogger blog. As long as you promote your blog well it does not matter if you buy your own domain or use blogger or Word Press. Use fundamental blogging stratagies making every post link bait and promoting every way possible. Social bookmarking, blog commenting, press releases, blog directory submission, and something useful is making your blog do follow you will have webmasters swarming it posting comments making it easy to build a readership the only thing you should be prepared for is comment spam.

    Moving from blogger to self-hosted wordpress is the best thing you could ever do. Blogging with blogger.com means you don't own the blog. Google can delete it at any even moment. A self hosted wordpress you own and can do whatever you like with it. Their are tons of plugins out there to do whatever you can think of.

    Wordpress is a great platform to start with. definitely recommended with lots of plugins that you can use.


    and why would google delete a blog any moment?

    Moving to wordpress with your own domain name and self hosting is good move.

    i think transfering your blogspot is difficult , try creating new wp and add it manually

    Get a domain name and hosted your own WP blog, you can do a lot of things than using a Blogger's blog.

    There are many way to promote your blog. If you willing to spend money, use adwords, it is the easiest and fastest way. If not, you can try on article submission, SEO, forum posting, yahoo answering, directory submissio, RSS submission, youtube video submission etc.

    It is better to move to WP if you plan to get your own hosting and domain

    Here you can find the information about transfering your blogspot to own host: http: // teeky.org/blogging/how-to-move-your-blog-from-blogspot-to-your-own-hosting/ (please delete the spaces in the URL I typed, I had to add spaces because I cannot post links yet)
    About marketing your blog, I would say make a youtube video, it's the fastest way to gain visitors. Also post comments in relevant high page rank blogs. Good luck!

    I like WP personally and would always go with self hosting! but then again sometimes the host dies and i lose my stuff :) which is least likely to happen with WP hosting. I am still hunting for a good host ;)
