We have completed importing all the previous posts which originally appeared on the Queen’s Blog, the Blogger version of the Bear Blog, then the Original WordPress Bear Blog and all has gone well. All posts are now in place, although there is still some work to do getting them to display in their correct Categories/Tags. We will also have to resize many of the graphic files manually because they are oversized for the new theme.

We are planning on importing all the posts and comments from the old blog over the weekend. This job will either be very easy and take half-an-hour or be a complete pest and crash the current site. We have tried this out using a test site and all went well, so hopefully there will be no interruption to the blog’s uptime.

Hopefully this will not happen and everything will import smoothly.
