Import/Export Posts from WordPress to WordPress

I recently did an export of most of the posts of my internet marketing blog to this blog. It was quite simple actually. Simply click on the Tools -> Export link on the left of the WordPress admin sidebar to export all the content from a WordPress blog to a XML file.

I had a feeling it would not be so easy but I thought it would be worth a try because I get to move the attachment, tags, comments and pages to my destination blog.

At my Maverick Web Creations’ blog, I selected the Tools -> Import link. I had to upload the XML file I got from the export to import the content. After the long wait, I could see that over 400 posts/pages were moved over!

The hard part was sorting out the categories and delete the unwanted posts/pages. I should have deleted the useless content before exporting/importing content from my previous WordPress blog to this WordPress blog. That would have saved me a lot of time.
