    I tried to import my blogs at blogspot.com. A few years ago, I did it and at that time it worked. However, when I did it now, it only imported titles of blog posts, not the contents. I know that the blog template etc of bloodspot.com were changed a lot.

    My blogs on blogspot.com are public. So, their is no access privilege issues.
    Are there any people who have this problem also? Anybody knows how to import blogs on blogspot.com successfully to wordpress.com?

    Thank you.

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

    The Blogspot exporter is spotty. I’ll flag this for staff support.

    I’ll need to completely empty http://jongamthought.wordpress.com/ so you can try again.

    Please let me know if you’d like to proceed.

    Thank you, macmanx. I’m currently deleting imported post page by page. Is there any special step to take to import a blog from blogspot?
    Yes. I would like to proceed.

    Once you have everything deleted, don’t forget to empty the Trash sub-section, try importing again with the Blogger export file, not the direct importer.

    This time, I used the exported file from blogspot, instead of asking wordpress to import from the blogspot directly. It worked!!!
    Also, it was very fast. I have abou 300 blog posts, but it was only 1.5MB.

    I think it will be better if there is a text to guide people to use blogspot export file instead of the direct importing.

    Thank you!!!!
