I have been advised today that it will likely take 5 more days to get my blog transferred from Blogger to another web host. 5 days?? Apparently with other web hosts the transfer can take place immediately or up to a day. But Blogger is an exception. There is no way in hell that it should take 5 days.
To all those who'd like to create a blog Do Not use Blogger!!!. It may seem easy to use (and it is), but if you ever want to use Wordpress or other platforms you will need to transfer to a different web host. Blogger does not make that easy to do.
