1. Login to your WordPress account and navigate to the Dashboard for the blog that you’d like to transfer to Blogger. Click on the Tools tab > Export as shown below (if you can’t see Export option, click on small triangle to expand the tab.

Now, click the download Export file button to export and download a XML file. Save this file to your local machine.

2. Go to WordPress2Blogger, browse to the saved document from step 1 and click Convert and save the output file (another XML document) downloaded to your local machine. This is the file in desired blogger format.
