Hi. I'm brand new, so please excuse the many gaps in my understanding.
I've managed to sign up for dreamhost, install wordpress, and get a "placeholder" page up. Ultimately, I'm going to replace my old site with a new one written in wordpress, but for now, baby steps.
One "page" on my website will be for my blog. I think that's currently showing as the home page. I am wondering if it is possible to import all of the old posts from my current typepad blog into the new wordpress hosted blog, and then just continue blogging there. I see that there is a plug in for import, but it wants me to have a file or ftp or things I just don't see a way to do.
I don't want to lose years and years of blogging and just start over here. I'd like for it to look seamless for all of my readers.
Any help greatly appreciated! The new wordpress site is www.elliebelly.com and my old blog is at http://joycevance.typepad.com
