WordPress.com Builds Inroads

WordPress.com has recently added a couple of inbound highways. A couple of weeks ago, Brian Colinger announced the Vox importer. Today, he announced the Posterous importer.

The particularly interesting thing about these two roads is that they come from very different directions. Hence the implication is that wherever you are, WordPress.com might be a better place for you. Vox bills itself as “everything you want in a blog.” I don’t think that it has lived up to Six Apart’s hopes for it.

Posterous, on the other hand, bills itself as “the dead simple place to post everything.” As Jennifer Van Grove points out at Mashable, Posterous has offered an import from WordPress for some time.

I’d be interested to see a traffic report on export/import and migration between the various blogging and other social media services.
