Changing Author of Imported Nodes in Drupal

If you have imported a bunch of nodes from another source (perhaps using the Blogger Importer module) and the author has defaulted to Anonymous, you can set all the nodes to a specific author with a MySQL query.

UPDATE `node` SET uid = "1"

Use at your own risk.  Important: This will set all nodes to author uid 1.  If you have multiple uids you need to keep track of, you’ll have to filter them with a SELECT statement first.
