Get a Move On: Import Your Blog to

If you want to move your website to from another platform, one of your biggest concerns is probably whether you can import existing content to your new site. After all, wouldn’t it make life easier if you could quickly and easily move your posts over in one go instead of individually copying and pasting each one?

While it’s possible to import content to from other blogging and site-building platforms, it’s important to understand the current possibilities and limitations of this process. Without further ado, here’s how to import your blog to

Can you import content to

The short answer is yes; you can import your existing site or blog to — but you can only automatically import its content from certain platforms.

Currently, supports automatic imports from:

  • Blogger
  • Medium
  • Self-hosted sites
  • Squarespace
  • Tumblr
  • Weebly
  • Wix
  • Blogroll
  • GoDaddy Quick Blogcast
  • Israblog
  • LiveJournal
  • Movable Type and TypePad
  • My Opera
  • Posterous
  • Storylane
  • Xanga

If you’re using a drag-and-drop HTML builder or another blogging platform not listed above, you have to manually import your content. The silver lining is that once you move your content over to, it will be exponentially easier to manage and update in the future.

What content types can you import?

There are many different pieces that make up a website, ranging from standard text posts and multimedia, to comments and domains. Ideally, you want to transfer as many of these items as possible when moving over to It’s important to note that the site you’re importing content from dictates exactly what can and cannot be moved over.

Some sites allow you to move almost everything (posts, comments, media, and domains), while others only allow you to transfer limited pieces. For example, if you’re moving from Blogger to, you can import all of your posts, comments, and attached media content. However, your Blogger theme and personal settings cannot be imported.

On the other hand, when moving from Wix to, you can import blog posts and images, but will have to manually move your pages. Further, your themes and forms on Wix will not move over.

The items that you can import to vary slightly for each website. Read the specifics for your particular host on the Transfer to page, as well as detailed instructions on how to make the switch.

Where does imported content go?

You’re probably wondering where your content ends up once it’s imported to — it’s no use if you can’t find it, right?

Once your import is complete (this can take a while if you have a lot of existing content) you can access your content by going to My Site and then Blog Posts.
