My coder is trying to convince 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 number of
websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
