Hi Lenora! Stephanie Merchant Johnson offered a great tip, so we're passing it along here:

I have two internet tabs open simultaneously: Fresh Ink on one, YourHub on the other. I open up the YH story, click "Edit" (makes it easier), put my cursor inside the story somewhere, click CTRL + A (to select All), then CTRL + C (to Copy). Then I go to the Fresh Ink tab, click on "Add a Blog Post," type in a title, click the cursor into the body, and hit CTRL + V (to paste), then make any necessary changes/updates. Then I scroll down to the date and change it to the date I originally posted it on YourHub so the stories stay in order, then click "Publish." I'll be doing photos separately, I just wanted to get all the stories transferred for now. Let me know if you have any questions.
