A little confused on transfering my domain (2 posts)

    Thanks in advance for the help.
    I started blogging about a year ago and opened an account on Blogspot. About 4 months ago I purchased a personal domain name in order to give it a more professional feel for the increasing traffic. To make a long story short, I am tired of the lack of easy customization + helpful widgets and would like to switch to something more powerful like WordPress. I have two questions. Is it easy/possible to transfer the control of my site from the Blogger control panel to WordPress even though I own the domain and am no longer officially part of Blogger? Secondly, will this in any way negatively affect the traffic to my site?

    See http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress and http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content and once you install WordPress, you can repoint your domain to that new host. It may only negatively effect SEO if you don't or can't do 301 redirects from your blogger URLs to WordPress URLs.
