The other day I have been ranting about not finding the way to do blog to blog migration and then found it.

After having proclaimed over Facebook that never will I think about blog exporting again. Regardless of the changes I have made in this wp blog, I don’t think I will ever be satisfied until I find a way to have my wp xml exported to Tumblr or Blogger. Unfortunately, this offered me no hope for Tumblr.

The answer is a resounding NO. For one big reason – I cannot migrate my content to Tumblr.

And this is really disappointing.

WordPress has done me great, and I am really happy with it. but I have one problem, it has so many features I think I am so finding them complicating my already complicated life. Tumblr on the other hand is, to be honestly speaking, not so advanced as wp and other blog hosts, but has a simple interface. And I am loving the simplicity and easiness of it. I do have my tumblelog, but I wanna export my blogs too.

Then I tried blog2blog migration tool to transfer my wp posts to Blogger, but all I get is “Connection to BloggerDesest Failed.” and it’s even frustrating than not having found a way to all these.2

I tried Blogger Import tool too, however It only works for Blogger to Blogger transfer, and it’s twice the frustration.

Meanwhile, milling about at the back of my head are thoughts I cannot deny. One is why do I have to complicate my life when I have all I need in WordPress. Secondly, there is always an option to omit all my widgets and use a simplier theme. And lastly, nothing is ever easier in this world.

I am such a douchebag.

Lately I have been wondering about exporting this wordpress blog to another host like Tumblr or Blogger. Snipplr made the best solution I could find in the internet. Unfortunately Tumblr API did not work for me as expected.

On the other hand, I found out possibly easier ways to export wordpress blog to blogger/blogpost. This blog offers  applications for blog to blog transfer. Now I am about to try installing any of the following suggestions and see how it goes.

However, there are  downsides upon successful blog to blog transfer. Quoted below are among them:

  1. Only 50 posts can be imported in 24 hours
  2. Tags and categories cannot be imported
  3. Comments are lost; and in cases where comments can be imported the commentator is displayed as the person who imported the posts
  4. Blogs after getting imported will not display original Multiple Authors, it will only display single name
  5. You will lose your pagerank
  6. You will have to start everything else all over again
