Splinder, a popular Italian blogging service, will be closing its doors on January 31st. If you’re Splinder user in need of a new home, fear not! Moving to WordPress is super-easy.

If you want to try a similar hosted blogging service, WordPress.com has you covered with a new importer, a handy guide, and free support if something goes wrong.

If you think it’s time to host your own blog, you might be interested in running a self-hosted WordPress.org blog. There are no Splinder importers for WordPress.org yet, but you can import to a WordPress.com blog, then export the resulting blog to any WordPress.org installation. Before you choose between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, make sure that you review the differences between the two.

Having been through two similar service closures myself, I recommend moving your Splinder blog as soon as possible. When those doors shut, they tend to shut for good, and you don’t want to be one of those who just waited too long. Even if you don’t plan on moving to WordPress, you might want to import into a WordPress.com blog now, just to preserve your content until you know what your plans are.

    Why are they closing? Is it lack of members?

    I cant understand why anyone would want to use anything other than wordpress as their blogging platform. Splindar was popular, I agree but I don’t think it came close to wordpress even when it was up.

      I totally agree with you. WP has countless free plugins that we can use. Few days ago we’ve had a problem with our hosting provider. Something just went wrong with their server. When they solved a problem, our site just didn’t work. We put our site back on in less than 5 minutes thanks to EZPZ OCB backup plugin. This is really great plugin and it’s free.
