Need a new online home? It’s easy to import into WordPress.com.
We think it’s important that you own the content you create online, which is why we make it simple to import or export all your data — you wrote it it, it’s yours, and you can take it where you’d like. If you want to become a part of the WordPress.com community but have been posting on Tumblr, Blogger, LiveJournal, Posterous, or other services, you can move your whole oeuvre over with a few clicks. (It’s just as easy to leave, but we’d miss you!)
This also means that if you’re blogging with a service that’s phasing out, as Posterous is doing on April 30, it’s easy to keep your site going by setting up a WordPress.com account and importing all your content. (Check out the Posterous blog announcement for more details on the change.)
We know it can be rough leaving a tool that you know and are comfortable with, so we’ve made the importing and setup process super-friendly: our documentation on importing a blog from Posterous walks you through the whole process step-by-step, from exporting from Posterous to registering your WordPress.com site to posting via email.
And if you have a domain you’ve been using with your Posterous Space (like yourgroovydomain.com) we can help you link it to your new WordPress.com site, so your followers will always know how to find you.
If this is your first time using WordPress.com, here are a few more resources for getting your new site up and running quickly:
