    I have a blog in blogger and i need to import posts from there to my new WP blog... but: i need to import just SOME post and not all posts.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Depends on how you define SOME posts. For 20 posts, I would just copy and paste.

    yes... but that way you cannot import comments :(

    I need to import, let's say 20 posts, but WITH comments...
    is there a way to do that?

    Someone with special magic script to import specific posts with comments from Blogger to WordPress might be able to do that, haven't seen any, so no pain-free way at this time.

    At this time, I would import all Blogger posts/comments then export XML and manually delete/exclude the other information I don't need by referencing matching IDs of posts and comments plus the categories and tags. You can Google for information about cutting XML files for more info.

    Depending on number of Blogger posts VS number of posts you want in your WordPress, the process could take from thirty minutes to a few hours :-) An alternative would be to hire services of WP-Pro
