I’m trying to import my blogging content from a Goodreads blog at the moment, and have an XML file of the posts. When I log into my WP dashboard, I can’t see an option to convert from rss. Why is this?
WordPress.ORG self-hosted blogs can import from RSS, but that feature is not available here at wordpress.COM.
You could install WAMP (Windows) or MAMP (Mac) on your computer, then install the self-hosted version of wordpress, import the RSS into that wordpress install and then export it out of that install and import it here. I don’t know of any other way to do it.
