You can also easily import content here from another WordPress.com or WordPress.org blog or web site (choose the WordPress option).

Don’t See a Specific Importer for Your Blog’s Service?

If we do not have an importing tool for your particular platform, you will need to try and convert it into one of the accepted formats so that you can use the proper importer. This means you first convert your blog to one of the services mentioned above (such as Blogger), and then import your blog from Blogger to WordPress.com.

If you are importing content from another WordPress-powered blog, you can check the “Download and import file attachments” box and the media files will be downloaded from your old host and uploaded to WordPress.com.
