Tumblr Import - Fail

When I first set out to set up this blog, Blogger was not working for me (see posts below). So I set it up initially on Tumblr. Now that Blogger is up and running I looked for a way to export Tumblr posts in such a way that I could import them into Blogger. 

The only option was a script that someone wrote that allowed you to export Tumblr posts in .xml format (for Wordpress import) but the Blogger import function failed with a generic error code that doesn't explain a whole lot. That is something that frustrates me with some Google products. Generic error codes that don't help much!

So, I am stuck with the old fashioned approach, cut and paste. I have to confess, at this point, I am really tempted to turn on the PC as alt+tab,  ctl+c and ctl+v look really tempting! Let's see what I can do on the Transformer Infinity!
