Import a WordPress blog into Tumblr

Update: a new version of wp2tumblr is available here!

Earlier this week I decided move an old self-hosted WordPress blog into Tumblr and discovered that there really weren’t any tools to import your existing WordPress content into your new Tumblog. So I built one.

wp2tumblr on GitHub

Download an XML export of your blog by logging in to WP-admin and going to Tools -> Export. Then run wp2tumblr and follow the instructions.

I wrote it in python for fun but am no means a python expert, so if you see something in the code that makes you say WTF, send me an email and show me what I’m doing wrong.
