    Hi, I see that others are getting imports from blogger. Not working for me.

    <h2>Could not connect to https://www.google.com</h2><p>There was a problem opening a secure connection to Google. This is what went wrong:</p>

    Aah sorry my bad. I should have searched the forums a bit more.

    Like all the other folk here in this situation I have discovered you cannot use the blogger import facility if your wordpress blog is not hosted at wordpress.com

    My wordpress blog is self hosted (thanks to phpnet.0lx.net!)

    To get around the problem it wasn't to hard:

    1. Create an empty blog on wordpress.com.
    2. Import from my blogger account into my new wordpress blog
    3. Export my new wordpress blog as xml - save it on my hard drive.
    4. Go to my self-hosted wordpress blog and import the wordpress xml from my hard drive
    5. remove entries from wordpress.com site and blogger.com

    Hope that helps...
