    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 a variety of websites for
    about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
    all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
