Blog Export/Import

Dave Winer: We should begin a discussion, in earnest, about getting user’s data in a format that makes it easy to move between blogging software, and storing that data somewhere that’s not likely to go offline when there’s an outage.

Randy: All my data is easily exported via OPML and RSS. The starting point is an OPML archive file. Each outline in the OPML is an monthly archive of my blog posts in RSS. Exporting my data takes a few minutes. I used this format to export my original Radio blog. I also used it to export Alec Saunders' old Radio blog and he was easily able to import it into Wordpress.
