This is going to be a series of blogs, and hopefully release source code for getting your blog out of Windows Live Spaces. I want to split this into two major sections, and then have a few trailing articles discussing the differences and things as I encounter them.
First Half: Export your blog data out of Windows Live Spaces
- No export option
- MetaBlogAPI – documented on MSDN
- Export to some sort of format: XML? MoveableType?
- Cleaning the data
- Exporting comments?
Second Half: Import your blog data into SquareSpace
- Using a format that SquareSpace understands
- Unhappiness with documentation – regarding DYI imports
- Imported Blogs go under a new journal
- Migrating content between journals
- Release code
- Data cleaning
