Moving my main journal was so quick and painless that I'm thinking I may as well move my writing journal to DW as well. Even better, 99.9999999999999% of the entries are locked for my eyes only, so there's no need to worry about cross-posting. Hmmmmmmmm.

Whee! I took an extra day off for the holiday, so I'm at home enjoying not being at work. Tomorrow will probably be twelve shades of hell, so I'm not going to think about it.

After mulling it over for a while, I've finally made the switch to Dreamwidth. Importing my LJ entries took, like, negative time it was so fast! I imported all entries and comments and it took about two minutes, tops. I am beyond impressed!

Other than the cross-posting footer at the bottom of my entries, my friends still exclusively on LJ shouldn't notice a difference. You can continue to comment on LJ, or you can use Open ID to comment on Dreamwidth, your choice. :-)

For anyone interested in moving to Dreamwidth but wants to know more about it first, here's the link to the FAQ:

Edited to add... And! Thanks to Kat, the Dreamwidth Support Ninja, I can also give you the link to A guide to Dreamwidth for LiveJournal users:

I'm not getting paid for this (I have a free account!), I'm just being a good LJ/DW neighbor. I'm just starting to learn my way about the site, so I'm sure there will be many, many teeth-gnashing posts in the future. ;-)

Off to do stuff!

I think I'm ready to import my LJ entries to Dreamwidth and start posting from there. 0_o <--(why does that look funnier when other people do it?) My paid LJ account runs out in January, so that's when I'll start a paid DW account. I'll keep cross-posting though, since I hardly know anyone on Dreamwidth.

It's a little scary; it's kind of like when I started my LJ and had no friends. :( There's new terminology to learn, blah blah short, I hope that this will be my only and LAST journal move! Dreamwidth, don't let me down! Once I move I'll be with you for the long haul. :-)
