One. Singular Sensation! (I wish.)

I feel like I keep bringing this up, but I'm in a land of confusion on what to do with my website. I don't write on it as much as I would like, but do try and post music, links, photos, etc. here pretty often. Which is basically what Tumblr is fabulous for…except they don't allow you to import old posts. And with nearly 9 years of content here, I don't really want to relinquish that. As such, I'm stuck with the following conundrum (also detailed here.) 

I want a way to import my Tumblr posts directly into Typepad – the main blog, not the sidebar. And I honestly can't figure out how to do it. The GetSatisfaction post above didn't provide a resolution.

Another option would be to move to Tumblr altogether, linking back to aubreysabala.com for archives, but that's also not ideal. 

I've never built a site in WordPress, so don't really want to learn a whole new platform, however intuitive.

I'm frustrated. I want ONE place for all my stuff, and I want it to be AubreySabala.com, and I want it to be easy and intuitive and I want it to be pretty, and I want it now(ish). Help please.

What should I do?

  1. Over the weekend I did move my blog to the SquareSpace platform. I had a few glitches but the support department replied back quickly – yes even on the weekend. Everything imported easily. Good luck with whatever you do.
    btw – I am no way affiliated with SquareSpace other than as a customer.

  2. Why don’t you just switch to one of TypePad’s new microblogging templates? “Chroma” and “Pico” are both awesome and – with all of TypePad’s amazing new updates – make blogging and posting super easy.

  3. Hmm.. as far as I know TypePad doesn’t support importing content from other blogs (yet?).
    You could post your audio to Tumblr then use the TypePad Blog It bookmarklet to repost from Tumblr to this blog. It’s not ideal, but probably only a few clicks.
    Actually, the Blog It bookmarklet is the shit. If you don’t have it already, you can get from the sidebar of your blog’s main page (the page with the stats).
    I’ve been going nuts with the bookmarklet lately at http://leahculver.typepad.com/
    That blog uses the Chroma theme which Daisy mentioned. It’s very Tumblr-y.
    Here’s another one: http://ptp.typepad.com/sadblog/
