LJ PSA: time for DW [Dec. 29th, 2016|11:54 am]
For those who still occasionally use or have fond memories of LiveJournal:

It sounds like there's a non-zero chance that Russian political shenanigans are happening that could cause LJ to implode in the relatively near future. Details: http://siderea.livejournal.com/1330197.html

Even if you're never intending to post there again, I would encourage everybody who's still got an LJ account to import it to DreamWidth. It's a chunk of our collective shared history, and I think it would be a shame to lose it.

And, more importantly, you can do it easily and for free.
1) Go to DreamWidth and make a new free account: https://www.dreamwidth.org/create
2) Log in
3) Go to the Import Journal page, give it your LJ login info, and click the buttons:

That's it!

Do your part to help out future historians. And give sentimental softies like me the ability to look back with fond nostalgia on our shared past by reading old entries. :)

Have you done this yourself? I'm just curious how long it took. I have over 13 years of entries to move.

And sadly, I have a permanent account here. I bought it right before FB took off and everyone jumped ship. Not my best timing, but I've enjoyed having the account.

Now I worry what will happen next with LJ.

I did! It took all of a couple minutes for the DW servers to copy everything over.
