I want a full blog...

I have been dicking around with moving things over to Blogger from GoDaddy, which they do not make easy...  Seems like neither company is willing to work with each other.  Other transfers from Wordpress or other companies seem easy, but going from GoDaddy to something else is a pain in the ass. I am basically going to have to go into the post section of old location, click like I am editing post in HTML, copy HTML code and paste into a new blogger post,which I then have to set to date of original post... lets just say there are about 1800 posts between May of 2007 and December of 2011 that need to be moved...arghh!!! Where is an assistant when I need one... It is getting too late for me to fuck with it tonite... I am sure if I do it a different way it will be faster, so I will still search.  So if you see old post popping up, sorry, it just me reposting them from other location... I will trying figure something else out in the meantime...

Yikes. I don't envy your task.
I trust you of all people will figure it out, clever man you are!

Please oh please don't use GoDaddy! They're awful! Trust me, I deal with them regularly and it's always hell.

Let me set you up with a web host running cPanel. That's an open source control panel so even if you don't like them, you can move to a different web host running cPanel without any trouble. And Wordpress has some great plugins for easy Blogger import.

Check out my the web host I use, http://www.asmallorange.com. If you like them, I can send you some advice before you sign up.
