If orange is the new black, then writing a blog must be the modern day equivalent of penning a novel. According to research carried out by  Social Media Today, close to 7 million people maintain an online hub where they post their thoughts for the world to read. Moonfruit offers a built in blog solution, but we’ve found that blogs are pretty personal things. Like a comfy sweater that fits just so, it can be tough to get rid of something when you’ve been using it for years.

WordPress is one of the popular platforms out there. If you happen to have a blog on WordPress and aren’t ready to move it over to Moonfruit, don’t fret. There’s a quick and easy way for you to embed it on your website using our WordPress app. Read the full guide here.

Now what are you waiting for? Go write that novel blog!

    Thanks for the fantastic tutorial! I just applied it to my site {http://yaansoon.moonfruit.com} – I added my Tumblr blog to my home page and it looks super amazing…
    Happy new year!

    Tried to add my wordpress blog to my site and it will not allow me to change the size from a postage stamp. Tried to put a normal blogpage too and the words wdon’t show up so it looks like I have added a blank page to my site and no one at moonfruit will even bother to reply to my request for help.

      Hi Ioanna,

      I checked your account and it doesn’t look like you have raised any support tickets about this issue. Please remember you need to raise all support requests through the support dashboard, it is not possible to email support directly.

      With regard to your embed code, it looks like you have missed step 4 in the guide – your height and width values are set to 0, which means the HTML Snippet is showing only a tiny portion of your blog. Let me know how you get on :)

      Cheers, Steven

    Hi – I currently have a blog page as part of my fabulous website, but it makes it impossible for people to ‘Pin’ from my blog. As my business is a very ‘visual’ sort of business, Pinterest is an important Stream for my social media mix.
    I was wondering if by forming my blog on WordPress, and then attaching it to my Moonfruit website, I might be able to overcome this problem?
    I notice you have buttons for Pinterest, Facebook, Google plus etc on the side of this page, so I am hoping that Moonfruit is not totally allergic to this aspect of Social Media linking.
    Many thanks, Emma

      Hi Emma,

      By creating (and embedding) a WordPress blog you would be able to take advantage of their Pinterest plugin :)

    Hi,

    I think this is great as I was a bit frustrated with the limitations of the blog within Moonfruit. So I set up a blog on Blogger and managed to incorporate it successfully into my Moonfruit website. Now my problem is, when Google is crawling the Moonfruit page it is empty as it cannot read the Widget. How can I make sure the page is crawled by Google in a way that Google can read the content? Thanks very much in advance for any advice!

      Hi Resi,

      I’m glad you were able to make use of the guide. Unfortunately there is no way (that I’m aware of) to make Google crawl the content of the HTML snippet – that’s the trade off. Sorry about that.

      Cheers, Steven
