OK, I'm Here. Now What?

Well, after listening to various complaints about LJ, and after one nearly complete defection from same, I decided to finally break down and make a presence here (at Dreamwidth), too. ::looks around at empty space::

I am not certain how to go about linking posts, but I'll try. Anyway, for the time being, this is simply a hedge (and a way of communicating with anyone who decides to break away from LJ all together). I will still be doing my posting and replying on LJ and I intend to remain there (since that's where most of my friends reside) unless unless they eff-up really badly. In the meantime, I'd appreciate any help I can get from those of you who have been here for awhile in navigating this unfamiliar territory. :-) For one thing, how do I find you all? If you have a space here at Dreamwidth, are you using the same username here as at LJ?

I have a dreamwidth account - it's a handy backup for all information on LJ. Very fast back-up, too. But I never use it. LJ is fine for me.

Can you (easily) transfer what's on your LJ to Dreamwidth? I intend to stay with LJ until they really give me a reason not to, but it would be nice to be able to move if need be without losing anything.

Yes, you go to your homepage on dreamwidth, you select "organise", and you choose 'import content'. Then you follow the steps, and within 2 minutes or so all your journal posts and comments are imported.

I never select to import userpics, since I have way over 15 on LJ and just the standard 15 at dreamwidth.

It's very easy, and very handy. The one thing that doesn't always work is importing videos. One has to transfer the imbed code manually.
