How To Move Tumblr To BlogSpot

Even though you will find plenty of tutorials that tell you how to migrate a blogspot blog to tumblr, it’s not the same case when you try to move tumblr to blogspot.

Though we are yet to see a browser app that let you export all your tumblr posts to blogger directly, the process is still possible if you first use a tool meant to export tumblr to wordpress, using it as a “bridge” to import your tumblr blog into Blogspot.

How To Move Tumblr To BlogSpot (Blogger Platform)

  1. First of all, use this tool, to export your tumblr blog posts into a XML format, and get them ready for the migration to wordpress [if you want a flawless export, with no half-imported posts or missing ones, read our own tutorial, it may take a while, but it’s worth it if you are definitely decided to get your tumblr into blogspot.]
  2. Method 1. You might want to try right now using this XML file, go to your Blogger account, and import your Tumblr directly, it does work sometimes. If it does, forget the rest of the steps given below.
  3. Now, it’s time to create a wordpress account (it’s free, not a self-hosted version). And once you have it working and validated (no need to create tests posts or anything like that). go to the next step.
  4. Method 2. Sign in to WP, go to Tools >> Import >> and get this file as a WordPress Type import.
  5. Method 3. If the tool above dint work as expected, try importing your Tumblr Blog directly into WP by going to Tools >> Import >> and choosing Tumblr (need to enter email and pass)
  6. Once the above migration step is finished, go to the following tool and follow step-by-step the instructions given on the site to finale move your tumblr into BlogSpot.
This Tumblr Export process will not actually migrate your pictures and videos, it will just link to them. So after you finish with the migration process, keep in mind not to delete your tumblr blog, so you keep the pictures and other media.

    Hey thanks! This post helped me a lot. After many attempts to import my tumblr in to blogger I was successful with doing the following: import Tumblr to WordPress > export and download WordPress xml>convert WordPress xml using the tool in Step 6 > download that xml.html file > import xml.html file into Blogger!
    note: images that were added in my tumblr blog using HTML rather than the Tumblr image upload tool, successfully imported!

    Hello! I was wondering if the import also includes the theme? I mean, if I import my tumblr blog to Blogger, will it also show the tumblr theme? Hope you understood :)


    Mr. Tumblr Reply:

    of course not. You can still clone the Tumblr theme and export the layout to blogger, but that requires a lot of HTML and CSS knowdledge.
