Alrighty then, Microblogians, if I were to export posts from one Micro.blog in order to import them into another Micro.blog (while preserving the post dates, etc. in the new one) what Export format would I choose?

@patrickrhone Manton has been really pushing .bar on here. I imagine Wordpress would work fine, also.

@skoobz Noted. That said, .bar does not appear to be an import option. Perhaps I'm missing it? Or something @manton should make an option for this purpose/reason?

@patrickrhone @skoobz BAR is basically a zip container so you need to unzip it to get at the Markdown files. That import will also grab any images referenced by the Markdown.

Also, I agree — a Micro.blog hosted export-import feature would both be a good addition and potentially quite pleasing if it's possible to simplify the process. A migration tool of sorts, I suppose.

@patrickrhone @skoobz Micro.blog on the web can't import .bar yet, but the Mac app can. Hoping to get .bar import on the web very soon. If you can't use the Mac app, WordPress is a good second choice.

@manton Thanks. Also, while I have you. If I want to upgrade my existing Micro.blog to Premium (https://patrickrhone.micro.blog) it wants to instead create a second blog for me for an additional $5 (instead of just changing my charge to $10). Is it because I'm moving to fast with changes (Just re-activated my paid plan for that particular Micro.blog).

@patrickrhone Probably so, there are some glitches with trials and re-activation, I think. Sorry. Mind sending me a quick email with which blog should be Premium and I'll update everything?
