Hello Mike,I think this would complicate issues,especially if the blog is already having traffic with the old url,I would suggest you leave it simple by leaving the blogspot under blogger and maybe create another site from wordpress,if not after the transfer you may begin to have issues which comprise crawling issues and even traffic issues,cos it would just be like you started all over again.
Better is not good enough, the best is yet to come!

Yes Mike what you are saying is possible. You can import a blogger blog into a wordpress website through the Import link under Settings in Wordpress admin. (See the attachment for a screenshot)

But like Prince Nuel pointed out, this may throw up new issues mostly because of the difference in permalink format between the two platforms. This means that the way wordpress generates its URLs is different from the way blogger does, therefore your old blogger links will not be able to lead people to your new website even after importing the posts. This is more or less equivalent to starting a new site entirely.

However there actually is a way to do it such that the old blogger urls are routed to the new wordpress URLs thereby solving the challenge of new URLs but this method is quite technical and should not be attempted if you don't fully understand how it works. It is known as 301 Redirect.

A 301 redirect is a way of redirecting one URL to another and is, like I said earlier on, technical and oftentimes fraught with challenges during implementation especially by beginners. But here is a very good guide: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

In conclusion, just like Prince Nuel advised, if your old site does not get much traffic, you might as well restart with a brand new wordpress site if the instructions are too technical. You can import your old posts from blogger but this time they will have different URLS and then carry on just as if it is a brand new website altogether. In this case you may have to forgo the old website and the traffic and rankings that it had before, but you can move your feedburner subscribers to the new website.

Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
