I want to move all blogposts from one space to another and set a label for each blogpost

I created a user macro which works to move all blogposts. But I am not able to add a label. The method createLabel(Label label) needs a value of the type Label, not a string. How to solve that?

## Macro title: My Macro
## Macro has a body: Y or N
## Body processing: Selected body processing option
## Output: Selected output option
##
## Developed by: My Name
## Date created: dd/mm/yyyy
## Installed by: My Name
## This is an example macro
## @param OriginSpace:title=Origin Space|type=spacekey|required=true|desc=Space
## @param TargetSpace:title=Target Space|type=spacekey|required=true|desc=Space
## @param Label:title=Label|type=string|required=false|desc=Label
#set($originSpace = $spaceManager.getSpace($paramOriginSpace) )
#set($targetSpace = $spaceManager.getSpace($paramTargetSpace) )
#set($labelManager = $action.getLabelManager() )
#set($blogPosts = $pageManager.getBlogPosts($originSpace, true) )
#if($req.getParameter("move") )
   #foreach($blogPost in $blogPosts)
     <li>move $blogPost to $targetSpace
       #if($paramLabel != "")
           ##set($label = $labelManager.createLabel($paramLabel) ) #* doesn't work, object Label is required: Label createLabel(Label label) *#
           ##$labelManager.addLabel($blogPost, $label) 
       #end
       $blogPost.setSpace($targetSpace)
       #if($blogPost.isInSpace($targetSpace)  )
          <span style="color:darkgreen"> moved ☑</span>
       #end
     </li>
   #end
#else
<h3>Move all blogposts from $originSpace to $targetSpace?</h3>
<form  method="get">
    <input type="submit" name="move" value="move all blogposts listed below">
</form>
<hr/>
   #foreach($blogPost in $blogPosts)
     <li>$blogPost (Labels:  $blogPost.getLabels() )</li>
   #end
#end

There must be some way to do it on the back end, but it's just as easy to do it on the front end.  Here's how I would do it:

## Macro title: My Macro
## Macro has a body: Y or N
## Body processing: Selected body processing option
## Output: Selected output option
##
## Developed by: My Name
## Date created: dd/mm/yyyy
## Installed by: My Name
## This is an example macro
## @param OriginSpace:title=Origin Space|type=spacekey|required=true|desc=Space
## @param TargetSpace:title=Target Space|type=spacekey|required=true|desc=Space
## @param Label:title=Label|type=string|required=false|desc=Label
#set($originSpace = $spaceManager.getSpace($paramOriginSpace) )
#set($targetSpace = $spaceManager.getSpace($paramTargetSpace) )
#set($labelManager = $action.getLabelManager() )
#set($blogPosts = $pageManager.getBlogPosts($originSpace, true) )
#if($req.getParameter("move") )
   #foreach($blogPost in $blogPosts)
     <li>move $blogPost to $targetSpace
       #if($paramLabel != "")
           <script>
               jQuery.post(contextPath+'/json/addlabelactivity.action', {'entityIdString': '$blogPost.id', 'labelString': '$paramLabel', 'atl_token': jQuery('#atlassian-token').attr('content') });
           </script>
       #end
       $blogPost.setSpace($targetSpace)
       #if($blogPost.isInSpace($targetSpace)  )
          <span style="color:darkgreen"> moved ☑</span>
       #end
     </li>
   #end
#else
<h3>Move all blogposts from $originSpace to $targetSpace?</h3>
<form  method="get">
    <input type="submit" name="move" value="move all blogposts listed below">
</form>
<hr/>
   #foreach($blogPost in $blogPosts)
     <li>$blogPost (Labels:  $blogPost.getLabels() )</li>
   #end
#end

Stephen, many thanks, you made my day ;-)
