Import Feeds into Tumblr


First of all, if you are trying to import a full feed/RSS/XML from any of your websites/blogs (with the exception of wordpress, which I’ll make a special post later), Tumblr doesn’t offer a full import feature where you can migrate/export your full site to Tumblr.  If you use the service that Tumblr has available you will only get posts that are 2 days old, and from that point on.  There’s also a limit on the amount of feeds (being 5) and the amount of daily posts per feed (so you don’t spam).

How to Import Feeds to Tumblr.

  1. Go to Customize >>> Services
  2. Go to Automatically Import My….  And here you can choose the specific platform you want to have the feed/rss/xml imported into Tumblr.  Otherwise just choose RSS FEED from the dropdown menu.
  3. Paste your site’s FEED URL and click on Start Importing This Feed.
  4. Save and Close

As I said there are some scripts specially written to import a full feed from wordpress or blogger into Tumblr.
