Blogger migration with established theme (4 posts)

    I'm basically migrating from Blogger because of their disabling ftp. I already have a website and just need to integrate WordPress with it.

    I've been searching the internet for tutorials, information, and quick fixes; but I need to get back to my school work as I am getting far behind now. To me it seems like it should be super simple but I don't have time to learn all the coding as of now. SticklindStudios.com/journal.html is where my current Blogger journal is located (for 30 seconds).

    Is anyone willing to help me code it or at least provide me with something quick and easy to develop the page with my current theme?

    Thanks for all your help!

    1. Install WordPress
    2. Import Blogger blog
    3. Look for a theme that approximates the look of your current theme and install and activate it e.g. this theme http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/minimalism
    4. Make changes in header.php and style.css of chosen theme for the backgrounds and possibly link colors.

    When you've got the above going, give site URL and will help you further.

    Thanks for your help and walking me through this. Your awesome!

    I've changed a few things but this is as far as I've gotten. Now that its Spring break, hopefully I can spare some brain power to learn a bit of this.
    This is what I have so far: http://www.stricklindstudios.com/journal/

    And this is my actual site design: http://www.stricklindstudios.com/journal.html

    Thanks again!

    I almost have the Header file figured out. I'm just afraid of deleting something important necessary for the scrips to run smoothly. If any one can walk me through this a bit more and help me the HTML I'd be very grateful. I can get the CSS handled easy. I just need my Wordpess journal to have my websites theme. Thanks!
