Part: I Getting Started with Movable Type > Migrating to Movable Type

Hour 9. Migrating to Movable Type

People migrate to Movable Type for a number of reasons. Some bloggers start out with hosted solutions such as Blogger or TypePad, which appeal to many first-time bloggers because they don't have to be installed and configured, and then decide they want more control over their content. Others might start with a simpler, but not as full-featured tool, such as Blosxom, and later decide that they want to move to something with more oomph.

Alternatively, you might already be using Movable Type but need to move your weblog to a new server—perhaps you're changing hosting providers. Whatever your situation, if you've been maintaining a weblog and have decided that you want to move to a new Movable-Type–powered one, you're almost certainly wondering what features Movable Type provides for migrating the entries from your old weblog to your new one.
