Jen was kind enough to get a WordPress blog set up for me, so I don’t need to use LiveJournal anymore! Thanks Jen!
I’ve just imported my LJ posts into WordPress. It was kind of a pain.
First I tried a python script called ljdump. This downloaded the entries, but not in a format that WordPress’s Livejournal importer would accept — maybe formats have changed? Dunno.
Next I tried jbackup, a perl script that was supposed to do the same thing. This looked a little more substantial, had some help, that kinda thing — but again, WordPress would not import the entries!
Finally I resorted to ljArchive, a Windows program that was able to export to an XML file that allowed WordPress to import both entries and comments! Yay. I feel a little dirty since I had to resort to a Windows app, but hey it worked and now I can get on with my life.
