Import Your Old Snippets From Other Websites

When you’re trying to get people to switch from a competitor to your product, you need to understand barriers to entry . . . or people won’t switch, and you’ll be waiting tables.
He’s right. I’ve received many emails from visitors saying how much they like Snipplr and how it integrates with TextMate and WordPress, but they just can’t switch because they have too many snippets stored on other websites like BigBold.com and copycat newcomer ProgrammingIsHard.com.
This morning I decided to do something about the problem and help users make the switch to Snipplr. I’ve added a new section to your Snipplr Settings page that let’s you import your existing snippets from other websites.
All you have to do is enter your username and Snipplr will automagically copy your snippets from their old home into Snipplr. It’ll even keep your tags in tact, too. It’s simple, quick, and painless.
Comments? Questions? Other websites you’d like to import? Let me know below.
