@jordon Yes, I'll email you a link to the import tool when it's online. Thanks!

@manton Sorry to bother, but just wanted to check if the Wordpress import tool would be ready by my domain expiration on Saturday (Nov 4). I don't know a lot about WordPress (it's a miracle I ever got it set up!), but I should be able to export it & use the tool when it's ready?

@manton Will do! Thanks again!

@jordon I'll try to get it ready before then. Still working on photo import support. If you email me your old blog URL to help@micro.blog I can make sure it will be supported well.

@manton any update on the Wordpress import tool? My current domain expires November 4 and I was hoping to move to a hosted micro.blog. I don't mind beta testing it, either! I don't have too many posts and wouldn't be upset to lose any of them.

@manton just in time! Thanks!!

@jordon WordPress import should be ready pretty soon. Hope to roll it out in the next few weeks.

@manton thanks! Any thoughts to Wordpress import? With the longer posts, I’d love to just host on micro.blog when my current hosting expires in early November.

@smith Thanks, I'll look into it and follow up via email. Shouldn't take that long.

@manton So I uploaded my zip archive two days ago and I don't see it…

@jordon We'd like to offer a yearly option in the future. It's going to be monthly for a while still, though, just for simplicity.

@manton Any thought to doing yearly (instead of monthly) subscriptions?

@manton Ahh ok. Well I have an archive from 2009 so I assume it'll take a while.

@smith No, not currently. That's a good idea. When the import finishes, it updates your microblog site with the new posts all at once, so if you see them there it should be ready.

@manton Will I get an email/notification when my Twitter archive is finished importing?

@manton Count me in the category of 'no tags or categories'. I've have a blog for that purpose.

@desparoz I'm not sure yet either. Categories and tags are useful for larger sites, but I don't want to add complexity to the posting interface.

@manton does thar imply categories and tags will be supported? Not sure how I feel about that!

@adamprocter Not yet! I still need to finish WordPress import before I can switch it over.
