Trouble Importing Blogger Blog Using XML file

  1. I am trying to import a blogger blog to wp .com using the XML file (full template backup in blogger) and am having trouble.

    I uploaded the file, got a successful message and it say "we will start your import immediately". That was almost an hour ago and nothing has happened yet. How long does this take? Did I miss a step?

    HELP??

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

    Try refreshing the page. In some instances I've seen the import thing "stick" and not refresh and give you the "done" message. After refreshing the page, check the blog to see if the import happened.

    Also, were you following the instructions in this support document: http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/ ? In general with a blogger import you import directly from the blogger blog - as I remember - not the XML file since with a full template backup at blogger, it contains the theme files, and those cannot be imported. Only the post content and associated stuff can be imported.
