Linking WordPress.com to LiveJournal.com

    Ok, I've basically setup my main site information on WP.com but want my main blog to show up on LiveJournal.com. I have an account for each but don't know how to setup the link from my WordPress account to go directly to the LiveJournal one. The info on here appears too cluttered which is why i want the main blog to show on LJ. I would like to know if this can even be done and if so, how can i go about doing it?

    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is eyesinthenight.wordpress.com.

  2. Do you mean you want to automatically post stuff to two sites?

    1 if so, why? Why not just use Livejournal?

    2 are you aware what this will do to your search engine ranking? The search engines will conclude that two blogs with identical content are both spam, and they will throw you out of their searches.

  3. Nope, I just want to do the blog solo on LJ instead. All the rest of the stuff i've created I want to leave on here. The fact that all of my listings won't show up in numerical form(which is freakin annoying) is the main reason I want to to do the blog only in LJ.

  4. I'm not sure what connection WordPress.com would have with Livejournal then. Could you explain? Do you mean you want to use this as your website, with static pages, and link to your blog at Livejournal? I suggest you put the link in a text widget or static page then.

    In numerical form? Why not just number them in the titles?

    Bingo Raincoaster...that's exactly what I want to do. I just didn't know how to word it the right way

    Number them in the titles....I didn't know you could do that. Thanks again for the tips.

  6. You cannot have them arranged on the blog by the numbers in the title here at wordpress.COM. They will always be in reverse chronological order (newest to oldest).

    Yep...I figured that out when I tried to do that, Sacredpath. Wish there was someway around that but, i guess i'll have to make due then. :-(

  8. You can number them and if you have a static front page, as eyes is talking about, you can just list them in numerical order manually. And of course if you're numbering them, the highest number will always be at the top of the main page, and from there as tsp says, in reverse chronological order, ie from highest number to lowest.
