Import Your Medium Stories To Hashnode In 5 Steps

Learn how to download your Medium articles and import them on your Hashnode blog

Hashnode makes it convenient for you to move your articles from Medium to Hashnode. In fact, you can do it in five simple steps.

Yes, it's that easy!

1. Navigate to Medium

Once you are on Medium, click on your profile picture. After that, a new dropdown appears, where you have an option called Settings.

Click on that option - Settings.

2. Download your data

To speed up the process, search directly for "Download your information". That will take you directly to the place where you can download all your Medium data.

Click on the button saying Download .zip and wait until the download finishes.

3. Hashnode's blog dashboard

Your article helped me a lot. thank you so much. About 45 of my 54 blog posts have arrived, but there are some I want to get more, either it gives an error or the circle is constantly spinning. I've tried this too many times. Have you ever encountered this problem? Can you suggest a method? thank you. Ekran Resmi 2021-07-23 20.07.30.png
