(My) RSS is Dead

I went on a kick and really wanted to keep this blog updated, but then I realized something. My RSS feed has been broken for almost a year. Personally, if a site doesn’t have an RSS feed, I can’t keep up with it. I can’t help but assume that most others in the demographic for this blog are in the same situation. The knowledge has completely killed my motivation to update.

I think it has something to do with how customized my template is, and the switch Blogger made from its old system to the new system. I have been wanting to play with WordPress for a long time, so this might be the kick that gets me moving in that direction.

Does anyone have any tips for migrating a site from the Blogger system to a self-hosted WordPress installation? Any killer plugins for WordPress that I’ll want to look at? Am I crazy for considering the switch?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
