It was very, very, very, very easy to create a new account on dreamwidth.org and to import all of my LJ entries, comments, userpics, tags, bio, friends, custom friend groups, and everything else.  I mean like stupid-easy.  Like 4 clicks easy.

Go here to learn how easy it is to import your LJ and all its goodies (or all the goodies you choose) to Dreamwidth: ​​​​​​​http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=127

Right now I'm running a job on LiveJournal that takes all of my entries and makes them private, except for one public entry that points everyone to dreamwidth.  It'll be a while before all my entries turn private though... (I figure LJ is getting a lot of traffic), but as soon as that's done, I'll purge it.

It's the end of an era.  Looking forward to seeing you guys over on dreamwidth.  If you go there, shoot me a friend request.

1,000,000 thanks to Thomas Boutell for the under-ass-fire-lighting.

I'm assuming you'll be xtingu there too?

Also - good call turning all entries private before the purge. I'll be doing that as well.

Also also - have you tested your IFTTT scripts on Dreamwidth? Curious if it's as easy as switching A to B.

IFTTT scripts were all easily tweakable. They all relied on LJ's "post via email" capability, and DW's "post by email" funtionality works the same exact way. So I just updated my IFTTT with my Dreamwidth info, and boom.

W00t! Nice. :)
Lj doesn't turn custom friends group entries private. So if you have custom groups, be careful. DW imports custom privacy, though, so I think it will save the security.
Ah, thank you. I'll take a gander!

Also, do you know who "purlewe" is on Dreamwidth? They friended me on DW, which is awesome, but I don't know who they are and their profile doesn't give their name or enough hints. They're friends with you and Ella and they're from Philly, but I don't recognize the name so I'm not sure if I should friend them back or not. Gracias!
Ann-Jeanette, she works in a library, she's married to a woman named Sue, she knits and she's pretty cool.
Hi again!
So it looks as though all of my custom-friend-group posts were all successfully made private through LJ's script, so I think I'm OK. (Unless it just shows it's private but really isn't.)

doing that now. I have over 10,000 entries. Whoot.
