Some blogger has asked how to transfer content from one blog to another. For Google Blogger blogs, there is no way to do this automatically. First, you must make a decision. Are you prepared for extra work? That is, are you willing to edit your old post so that it is different from your earlier posts? Reason for this is, many says search engine penalize duplicate content (controversial). I try to avoid duplicate content, so if I want to keep the original post, and start another blog which I would be doing when I can somehow snatch the time to do it properly - replace Blogger Tips and Tricks which is a sub-domain of .blogspot.com to Tips and Tricks for Blogger or "Son of Blogger Tips and Tricks" which will be eventually be a New Blogger custom domain (own property, no more .blogspot.com). That is what I will slowing do. Update the old post in the old blog as a new post (different content) in the new custom domain blog, and probably put a link in the old post in the old blog to the new updated post in the new blog. This takes time and effort which you may not be prepared to put in.
Another alternative is to edit the posts in the old blog in the EDIT HTML mode. This is best done with a web browser with tabbed browsing so that you can be signed into your old blog in one tab and the new blog in another tab, and you can easily go to-and-from blog to blog. In the old blog, edit the posts one by one while in the EDIT HTML mode, highlight the whole content of the old post (click inside the post editor window, press ctrl+A, right-click and select "cut" to transfer the old post content into clipboard), create a new post in the new blog, paste the whole content from clipboard into the new blog post editor (right-click and select "paste" or press ctrl+V). Publish the new post in the new blog. Then get the URL of the new post in the new blog.
Go back to the old post editor of the old blog (which will be in a different tab in the same window if you are using a web browser with tabbed browsing like FireFox which you can get with or without other useful tools from Google Pack for your blogging task. Anyway, when you return to the post editor of the old post in the old blog, the post editor window should be blank by now. What I had done with some of the posts in Malaysia and the rest of the world is to transfer in the manner described above to a new post in Blog for Positive Changes.
To illustrate, look at Long March for Justice. Note the the post is practically bland except for a little bit of content plus a link to the new post, to which the content of the old post in the first blog had been transferred to a new post in the new blog. To make it clearer, the content of what used to be a very long post plus an embedded Youtube video plus lots of photos now have just the content below:
The content of this post has been transferred to
Pray for Malaysia: Long March for Justice
Why did I go to all this trouble and not just delete the old posts? Reason is, often, old posts already have some inbound links in other parts of the web plus there probably are links to the posts in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) when someone search for something. If you delete the posts, then all those links become dead links (clicking on them will lead to a 404 Page not found error messages). Now by not deleting the old posts, at least you don't end up with dead links all over the web.
A further advantage is your new blog which very likely is yet to be indexed by search engines and probably have no PageRank information (worst than PageRank = 0). Now what you are doing is putting links in an old blog which probably have been indexed by search engines and is regularly crawled, and when the search engines spiders crawl your old blog, they will follow the link to your new blog and thus your new blog can be quickly indexed. Another advantage is your old blog probably have good PageRank, and getting links from websites with PageRank higher than your website is good for the new blog's PageRank.
Find topics by using the Google custom search box above which can search multiple blogs, or the SEARCH BLOG in the left corner of navbar. You can also find topics in the Label List and Categrories in the right sidebar.
