Blog-City Closing Down

Received a notification from Blog-City informing me that they are going to close down at the end of 2011.


I have 6-1/2 years' worth of blog. Walau..... how to migrate!!!????

I face a few problems here:
  • There are not a mainstream blog provider and so migration isn't as straight-forward as the mainstreamed ones have tools to accept each other's format.

    Blog-City currently exports in either html or rss formats which neither Wordpress nor Blogger/Blogspot recognises.

  • Even somehow I am able to figure a way to migrate the data over, what about the links? They won't auto-correct themselves? URRGGHH!!
Any gurus out there can help!! Please?

p.s. I am inclined to take on Wordpress and register a domain to it.

Aiya, bo lah... I am thinking to help you to do the editing too. But wait for Guru to comment first. Try Bluehost for wordpress. I been thinking of migrating but then it still add some cost to me.
