Previously I have been blogging about my blog import problems and I have been trying to condition my self to be patient and find a way somehow. After having proclaimed how Blog2Blog migration turned me down on many occasions, it also worked on one instant which made me really ecstatic! However, it only imported 50 items out of 113 entries I have in this wp blog. Since I still considered it a unsuccessful import, I deleted all my blogger imported entries, and tried again. Unfortunately, I was back to the same blog import problem, and it was disappointing and frustrating at the same time.

And earlier I googled further on WordPress to Blogger migration and found this but offered no hope for me. However, I already tried these steps many times in the past, regardless of my awareness that Non-Blogger to Blogger platform import will not work or will not result in a successful blog import.

Blogger doesn’t yet give you the opportunity to Import other Blogs from NON-BLOGGER platforms. It only gives you the ability to Import other Blogger Blogs! It’s another fine example of Blogger not being ready to launch a ‘full-scale’ option. It’s in ‘Beta’, if you will. It’s testing.

I am not blaming Google because I understand how they support only their own platforms. On the other hand, I want to rant at them about this problem, which they should have taken into consideration with due respect to those who are on the same situation as I am.

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.
