Importing from Ghost Blogging Platform

Hello Micro Bloggers

I understand Micro.blog can import from Ghost using JSON files from Ghost. I couldn’t find any further details on this. For example, are images imported? What is not imported?

My blog posts are also crossed post on Medium. This means I can import from either Ghost of Medium. Is Medium import better?

Many thanks.

The Ghost and Medium importing are similar, but I think I would try Ghost first because the format is simpler and probably less that could go wrong during the import. As you noticed, images aren’t included, but Micro.blog will check all the posts for “img” tags and when it finds one, it will automatically download the images referenced in your posts to store them on Micro.blog. So it’s important that the Ghost posts are still available on the web while the import runs.
