    Hi, i'm actually here to ask if anyone knows how I can import my blogspot website to a wordpress website which I
    have already set up for myself. I know you can use a blogger to wordpress importer but one issue i'm facing is that
    I put most of my post images on a Flickr account(currently not mine). I'm not sure if these images would be imported
    along , any advise from anyone would me much appreciated. Also, don't know how to keep the site rankings:(. Any
    professional advise or someone who could help me with this would be much appreciated!thankss!

    If you have a blog at blogspot and decide to switch your hosting to WordPress blog you can import all the posts, images and comments by using the WordPress Import feature (automated process also has import functions for LiveJournal, Posterous, Splinder, Israblog, Movable Type and TypePad, Yahoo!360°, Blogli, Vox.com, Tumblr, or another WordPress blog hosted elsewhere).
    Although all the posts and comments get transferred, widgets in the sidebar are ignored. You would have to re-create those from scratch. Blogger ‘Labels’ are preserved as WordPress ‘Categories’.

    To start the process go to the WordPress admin area and choose Tools > Import. Then choose which blogging system you want to import from.

    Please note: To use the importer with Blogger you must have a Google account and an upgraded blog. If you have an old-style Classic template you will need to switch to the new Blogger system. The blog must be hosted on BlogSpot, not externally via FTP.

    Step 1 – Authorize the transfer
    It would be helpful to login to your Google Account before you begin the import process. Then you can simply click the “Grant access” button and continue.

    Step 2 – Select a blog to import
    All accounts will be listed with an “Import” button for each blog.

    Step 3 – Author mapping
    On Blogger you have one username, and on WordPress another username. The author mapping process allows you to establish an association between the two usernames.

    Once these 3 steps have been completed the import proceeds automatically.
