Please select the blogger blog that you want to migrate to WordPress. If you want to import the blog, press the Import button next to it and it will start importing your posts, comments, images, and links. (This will take time to Blogspot’s blog size)
This process is very simple and WordPress’s import feature makes it very easy for non-techy people too. Once all your blog posts and comments are migrated, you can associate users with them.

As imported blogger labels will be used as categories of WordPress, then I would recommend only keeping some major categories, so that tags and tags for labels are correct.
In a few minutes, your new WordPress blog will be ready, and they also with all the posts and comments. If your importer stops or cannot import all the posts or comments at any time, o dump all posts and comments from your WordPress blog, I recommend using your WP self-employed plugin, which lets you use your WordPress blog You can dump all posts and comments and after that you can re-authenticate and re-initiate the process.
