Suggestions for importing Jekyll blog to micro.blog?

Micro.blog community: I need to migrate about 8,000 blog posts from a Jekyll site to micro.blog. Does anyone have suggestions or pointers to existing tools?

At first glance I thought I would write a Python script to recurse the _posts directory and hit micro.blog’s API creating each post. However, I have Jekyll tags in those markdown files that will cause serious challenges. Now I’m thinking I should use Jekyll to publish the site and then use the RSS or even a custom file, perhaps JSONFeed, to then import into micro.blog? Then I can make Jekyll do the hardest work for me.

Anyone done this and can recommend an approach? This seems to be similar to the method @manton used when importing his podcast.
