TravelPod is closing. I've set up TravelArk.org to host the content on the web and provide export options, including to TravellersPoint.

I've also been working with Peter to help export accounts from TravelArk to TravellersPoint.

Steps:
1) Create TravelArk account
2) Claim your profile so that it gets fully imported from TravelPod
3) Click on the "Manage" button of your profile
4) There are several buttons to flag your interest in several options
- Flag for TravellersPoint - marking this will allow Peter to eventually import your data to this site to try it out

If you end up preferring the TravelPod style of blogging, I may set up a site next month for a few people that works like the old TravelPod but looks different. You can also flag your account as interested in that option. We'll see how things go.

Hi Ryan- I just joined TravelArk, exported my data, and only 55 of my 57 blogs were exported. The message says it's due "to empty or hidden blogs", but I checked the two missing blogs, and neither are hidden or empty. Can you help? Thanks :)

Hi Ryan- also, I tried to message in TravelArk, but there's a weird bug: though my email shows in the upper-right hand corner, in the Forum page, it doesn't see me as logged in. And when I do log in, I just keep getting thrown to the login request. So I can't post comments there :)

traveljonez, send me an email and include your TravelPod username you're looking at so I can take a look. My email is on the front page of TravelArk. Thanks.

Just added my account. Looking forward to seeing how my blogs work on this site! I was afraid I was going to lose them all!

I have saved my blogs to Travelark, how do I import them into Travellerspoint?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

It looks like you still need to do steps 3 and 4 in the first post of this thread. Email me if you have trouble.

After that just wait until we're ready. Thanks.

Am I being very thick? I presume you mean there should be a button on my Travelark profile, there is no button?
