      You can see link in his signature. Hes on blogspot. You can turn on signatures from your profile, they are off by default.

    Make sure you backup your site before doing any changes.
    I once lost a couple of posts when switched my site from html to wordpress lol.

      To install plugins, you simply log in to your dashboard and go to Plugins -> add new. Now you simply search for the plugins you want to install and just.. click the install button! That's it, it's easy.

    you need to get to your website's cpanel
    look for some kind of automatic WordPress installer at the bottom of your cpanel.
    a couple of clicks and it will be installed.

    Now you have to either redo your site in WordPress or get someone that knows how to move files from html to Wordpress.

    There are a few WordPress plugins that can do that, once you get WP up and running

    Remember to keep your URL's the same. That would mean customizing your permalinks to have .html at the end or redirecting the .html versions to the non-.html versions.

    You could easily migrate blogger to wordpress and enjoy more features. Make sure to properly migrate with a 301 redirect.

    Are you referring to your site stated in your signature? If it is, then yes it is possible to monetize your posts on wordpress with google adsense directly provided that you meet the following:

    1. Get your own domain and hosting for your site.
    2. Import your post from your existing site to your new wordpress site. (You may have to delete your first blog contents in order not to have duplicate content as you have in your new wordpress site.)
    3. You are approved as adsense publisher. In this way, you can copy and paste your adsense code to your new wordpress site.
    4. Funnel tons of traffic to your site from all traffic sources that you can.

    I think, you will not make a lot of money through this method. Of course I am assuming that you want revenue from your site. If this is the case, I would suggest you promote affiliate products related to your topics and funnel targeted traffic to your site. You may still have to include adsense ads if you want.

    No offence to all the good answers but there is no way you are going to accomplish this by piecing 3 sentence posts together...

    Trust me, go to Youtube and i guarantee that you will find videos on everything from installing wordpress via your CPanel to migrating your site from Blogger to WP...[

    Same goes for buying domains and setting them up in you Host Provider
    Signature
    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.
