How to Import a self hosted Blogger Blog into WordPress

Moving your blog to WordPress? WordPress allows you to import your Blogger Blog, but not if you’re hosting the blog on your own server. I searched all over the web for the answer and simply couldn’t find it. I found a lot of people asking how to do this, but no definitive answer. Well, here’s the answer:

Temporarily switch your Blogger Blog back to hosting and then import your Blog with WordPress. It actually works.

There is one small catch that I ran into. When I switched my Blog back to SFTP hosting, it changed my legacy template just a bit. I couldn’t get it back to the way it was. Blogger is apparently using a different code to get their navbar at the top of the blog, and that code messed me up a bit. I did get my Blog imported into WordPress though.
