My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites
for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a
way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
