Default How to transfer blog!??? Please help

I have an old blog on blogger that is getting a lot of views. I set it up to document my skincare progress (or lack of)several years ago. For fun, I added adsense to it. I would like to set up my own domain and host for that blog but I have no idea how to do that. Is there any way to do that without losing everything I have written? As you can see, I have absolutely no idea how to do any of this.

You will be able to export from one and/or import into another CMS (content management system).

It is recommended that you purchase your domain and then find a separate company to host that way if you are ever unhappy with one you don't have to disengage your relationship with a company that is responsible for two key services that you need.

If you are going to use WordPress look into a plugin like this so you don't lose your Blogger page rank from moving your content to your own domain.

Just contact the company that you're buying your domain and monthly hosting from and ask them how much they will charge you to move it. That's what I did last week. Best stress-free $25 I ever spent.

Thank You! I looked it up and the process seemed kinda lengthy for me. I guess it wouldn't be a big deal for someone who is really good with all this computer stuff but I'm slow when it comes to this!

I'm fairly technically impaired. I either have to wait for my oldest son to have time or I have to pay someone. My new host moved mine for me. Best $25 I've EVER spent. There's no shame in making sure someone else has work.
