How Do I Transfer My Blogger to Squarespace?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 6:52 am

If you’re planning on moving your blog from Blogger to Squarespace, there are a few things you’ll need to do in order to make the transition as smooth as possible. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to do:

1. Export your content from Blogger. 2. Import your content into Squarespace. 3.

Choose a new template for your Squarespace site. 4. Customize your template and add any additional pages or content. 5. Go live with your new Squarespace site!

Exporting Your Content from Blogger

The first step is to export your content from Blogger. To do this, go to the Settings tab in Blogger and click on the Other tab.

Under the “Import & Back up” section, click on the “Export blog” link. This will generate an XML file of your blog’s content which you can then save to your computer.

Importing Your Content into Squarespace

Now that you have your exported XML file, you can import it into Squarespace. To do this, login to your Squarespace account and go to the Settings tab.

PRO TIP: If you are considering transferring your Blogger blog to Squarespace, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, your blog’s URL will change and you will need to set up 301 redirects to direct your old traffic to your new site. Secondly, if you have any custom code or CSS in your Blogger template, it will not transfer over to Squarespace. You will need to recreate any customizations you have made manually. Finally, Squarespace does not support RSS feeds, so any subscribers to your Blogger blog will need to resubscribe using the new RSS feed on your Squarespace site.

Under the “Not linked yet” section, click on the “Import Blog” link. From here, you can upload your XML file and Squarespace will automatically import all of your content.

Choosing a New Template

Once your content has been imported into Squarespace, it’s time to choose a new template for your site. Squarespace has a wide variety of beautiful templates to choose from, so take some time to browse through them and find one that fits the look and feel of your site. Once you’ve found a template you like, click on the “Use template” button to apply it to your site.

Customizing Your Template and Adding Additional Pages or Content

Now that you’ve chosen a template, it’s time to customize it and add any additional pages or content that you want on your site. To do this, login to your Squaresspace account and go to the Website tab.

From here, you can edit any aspect of your site, including adding new pages, changing colors or fonts, adding images or videos, etc. Be sure to take some time to explore all of the different options and make your site look just the way you want it!

Going Live with Your New Site!

Congratulations! You’ve now successfully transferred your blog from Blogger to Squarespace.

The last step is to go live with your new site by clicking on the “Publish Site” button in the Website tab. Once you do this, your new site will be live for everyone to see!
