    Go to Import on your dashboard and navigate to the file.

    On your dashboard, go to “Tools” on the left side panel at the bottom, then put your mouse on it until “Import” pops up, and upload the XML file

    You don’t appear to be the Administrator of that blog. If you aren’t, you can’t see the link.
