Various patched together routines in Python to convert WordPress’ unique XML data structure to something that is Blogger compatible have failed. It seems there is no problem with the routines, but rather the fact, that the free service on WordPress makes it extremely difficult to migrate elsewhere.
They don’t give a proper URL where the posts can be leached from. And they export into an XML files that has a data structure that can only be read by another WordPress installtion. I’m livid now. I should have stuck with instinct – Google products are usually the easiest to deal with.
