Moving from WordPress to Blogger Hassles

Have been attempting to move from WordPress to Blogger, and failing miserably at it.

There seems to be no useful tools still available that will parse the WordPress export to a usable file to import to Blogger. At one time there was several tools, and many sites to assist with this. I guess that has gone and many are no longer available or working.

Downloaded several scripts that say they work on converting the data to the correct format, all have failed me. Tried some websites, and they all barf on me that my file is either incorrect format or is too large.

Currently have moved one article over, with many format changes needed, it took me about an hour to get it in a readable format.

Attempting to move articles over one at a time is a time consuming, guess I will only move the important ones over and trash the others.
