How to migrate your Windows live spaces to WordPress

I login to my live (hotmail account) and check my blogsite, and I noticed the reminder bar on the top “Reminder: Windows Live Spaces is going away. Upgrade your blog now!”

what’s this? Windows Live + WordPress.

hmmp. sound like a plan. We at Phil-IT Org starting bloging using WordPress. And I think this is a good move for windows live spaces.

But my worries if I shift to wordpress, what happen on my blog content in windows live spaces? Thus blog contents import on wordpress or not. Ok me my try to migrate it.

But first I need to back-up my blog content on the spaces before to migrate.. I have 2 hotmail account and both are active no one is active (orlandopasionjr.13.spaces.live.com) and orlandopasionjr.spaces.live.com is not active.

Move to WordPress.com from Windows Live Spaces

  • Step 1: Move to WordPress.com from Windows Live Spaces. Howdy, Windows Live Spaces newcomer. Welcome to WordPress.com. To get started, click the button below to connect to your Windows Live account. So I click the orange button to give authorization on wordpress to migrate my spaces credentials. (It will pop-up a signing dialogbox of windowslive)
  • Step 2: Creating your WordPress.com account. username already sho, so I entered the password. I used same password on my live account. (maybe you my enter different password) then hit next button (orange button)
  • Step 3: Create your WordPress.com blog. I changed nothing just hit next button again.
  • Step 4: Migration in Progress. Here, WordPress conduct a migration process, transferring my blog from spaces to wordpress.
  • Finish. my new blog was generated. Of course spaces theme not transfer.
My worries are got. WordPress.com automatic adopt my blog content on spaces. (2 accounts)
