Import into WordPress Does Not Work

    I am trying to import blog posts from an XML file into WordPress (via the Site Admin screen). I receive an email confirming success however cannot see the posts and therefore assume the import has really failed.

    I have exported a WordPress XML file and have appended the below code to the end of the file.

    Why would this be failing?
    What fields are required?
    Do I need to populate publish date, IDs and URLs?

    <Item>
    <title> My Post Title </title>
    <link> My Post URL </link>
    <pubDate> Sun, 01 Jan 2012 00:00:00 +0000 </pubDate>
    <dc:creator> Author </dc:creator>
    <guid isPermaLink="false"> My Post WP URL </guid isPermaLink="false">
    <description> My Post Description </description>
    <content:encoded> My Post Content </content:encoded>
    <excerpt:encoded> My Post Excerpt </excerpt:encoded>
    <wp:post_id> 1 </wp:post_id>
    <wp:post_date> 2012-01-01 00:00:00 </wp:post_date>
    <wp:post_date_gmt> 2012-01-01 00:00:00 </wp:post_date_gmt>
    <wp:comment_status> Open </wp:comment_status>
    <wp:ping_status> Open </wp:ping_status>
    <wp:post_name> My Post Title </wp:post_name>
    <wp:status> inherit </wp:status>
    <wp:post_parent> My Post Parent ID </wp:post_parent>
    <wp:menu_order> 0 </wp:menu_order>
    <wp:post_type> attachment </wp:post_type>
    <wp:post_password> </wp:post_password>
    <wp:is_sticky> 0 </wp:is_sticky>
    <wp:attachment_url> </wp:attachment_url>
    </Item>

    The blog I need help with is sparknlaunch.wordpress.com.
