I’m not sure if I can do this or not, but I’ve had an account with LiveJournal for over six years. I’d love to have a WordPress blog, but not if it means losing my past entries. Is it possible to import them all to this blog? I can’t seem to find anything on it in the forums or the FAQs.
Then, when you’ve set up your WP blog, you upload the file in your WordPress Dashboard > Manage > Import > LiveJournal. It might take a while if you’ve got 6 years of posts, so best to do it early morning US time when the servers aren’t as busy.
