    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    Your blog is a self-hosted WordPress blog. For support please visit WordPress.org. http://wordpress.org/support/

    So can i export in any other way? or is this going to be a night full of cutting and pasting?

    If Tumblr has an exporter for XML files then you can create an XML import file here and import it there. http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/

    Or this one: http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/wordpress-to-tumblr

    You may first need to import your WordPress.com export file into a self-hosted WordPress.org site as an intermediate step.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.

    Okay so i think this is mission impossible? It seems impossible to export 15500 lines of coding. Don’t know what else to try. It’s weird because i started a wordpress by exporting parts of my livejournal to it and that was nothing more than two clicks with my mouse i remember.

    Hi there – I was able to generate an XML file for you, I’ll send it by email.

    Ah – just saw your last message – glad you found a workaround, if you think the XML file might still be useful, just let me know.
