I have done a successful install of Geeklog, however I am wondering about transferring my existing Blogger weblog entries to it. I searched the forums but oddly didn't find anything on what I thought would be a common request. This is a self hosted/non blogspot site to be transferred. Any help is appreciated.

Believe it or not, but this is the first time I've actually seen such a request ...

I'm afraid we're a bit short of converters from other weblogs. I guess the problem is that when people decide to move to Geeklog, they only have that conversion problem once and don't bother to go through all the troubles of writing and testing a proper converter. As long as they don't have too many entries, copy and paste is probably faster for them anyway.

One idea, though: Did you see the blog plugin that I wrote? Maybe you can use that and whatever blogger client you're using to download your entries from blogger.com and upload them to your Geeklog site (one by one, though ...).

bye, Dirk
