How do I import two blogs into two Blog sections?

I working on a Perch site that needs to import posts and comments from two separate Wordpress blogs. My thought is to use Blog's sections feature with a section for each blog.

I've successfully imported Wordpress blogs before into Blog, but I'm curious if there are tips for adding the section discrimination in this case. It's hundreds of posts, so an automated solution is greatly preferable.

Any help will be most appreciated!

Does WP have an option to split into a couple of different export files?

Not sure about that, but in this case I'd have two different files to import, one from each blog. Each one would need to go into a different Perch Blog section (no filtering needed per import).

So you'd just need a field to pick which section on import?

Yes, I think so. I could set up the sections ahead of time in Perch and then each import would go into whatever section is selected on the import form. Or something like that.

Ok, I'll see what we can do.

Fantastic, thank you.
