  • Hey guys,
    Rory here

    I recently discovered the joys of blogging on (
    I feel that it is now time for me to move to my own domain and hosting etc. For mainly customization reasons.
    Is this possible, and if it is will I keep all of my posts?

    However, I’m told that there is a support link or something like that on your dashboard, so use that. 🙂

    Hang on, if redrory was asking about how to move from a .blogspot blog to a blog at his own domain powered by WP, there would be a million responses* telling how to do that. Why should it be any different coz he wants to move from

    josalmon – I agree, but then we have importers for those. I would hope that there is indeed a way for people to export their data from .com – but I have no idea if there is, or will be or even to be honest where to look for such answer.

    I presume the best thing might be to click on the support link at and ask for an importer to be created?

    It would be useful to me so I’ll head off and do that now.


    The main problem is getting the data from the database being used over at If that can be accomplished, hopefully with just a database backup, then that could be imported/restored into redrory’s new blog.

    I’d say if you don’t have too many posts, that I’d do a copy and paste from the blog to the blog for each post.

    I’ve not used it but wouldn’t /import-rss.php be an option seeing as .com doesn’t yet support database export?

    Note that import-rss isn’t necessarily giving you ‘perfect’ data, since it gets processed in many stages after leaving the db. For simple sites, yes, you might be able to get away with it — and might not mind the issues that arise if it’s the only solution… 😉
