Well, I finally gave in and updated the old blog to WordPress. I was able to export the old blog posts into WordPress, but it did require a fair bit of editing of things like post dates and statuses (draft, published, etc). It also did not export comments. Seeing as I only had a few comments :), I wound up adding those by hand, which didn’t update the date/timestamps. Seeing as I’ve already taken down the old blog, it’s kind of tricky to figure out the old datetimestamps for those comments…

The biggest remaining issue is that not all of the URLs and slugs match the old posts perfectly. Many of them are fine after tweaking the permalink settings in wordpress to match the old blog format, but wordpress has renamed some of the article name/slugs , and resetting those looks like a manual process…
