Silly reference to my first entry ever aside, yes, I'm done copying all my LJ entries to DreamWidth! Well, except for community entries... and making sure that all of my entries copied over the way they're supposed to... I still have a long ways to go. My LJ was kind of a non-Euclidean mess already, and now I'm having to make sure that nothing looks too weird when it was transferred to DreamWidth. If you see anything that looks like it didn't copy over correctly, let me know.

Now I'm going to test to see what happens if I post a poll in a DW entry that gets cross-posted to LJ...

Sorry for the deleted comment, I posted it in the wrong place.

Since polls cross-posted from DW to LJ just show up as links like the one in the entry, I figured I might as well copy the question and answer choices from the poll over here so you can see what it's about without having to click the link.

Daphne (Frasier)
Agent Einstein (X-Files)
Eowyn (Lord of the Rings)
Galadriel (Lord of the Rings)
Heart (Circle Versus Square)
Holly (Lightning Made of Owls)
Irma (Garfield)
Liz (Garfield)
Marzipan (Homestar Runner)
Meridien (Lightning Made of Owls)
Agent Reyes (X-Files)
Roz (Frasier)

I'm really sorry that you have to transfer all of your entries to a new place; that sounds so stressful! Especially when you've been writing here for so long. But I'm sure you'll finish it and finally settle down nicely at Dreamwidth. Good luck with you and your life :D
And thanks for the comment on my journal!

I'm only creating a DreamWidth account as a backup; I could never leave LJ. :)

In fact, I still feel more at home on LJ than on DreamWidth. I've been feeling kind of (okay, not just kind of...) worried lately about the possibility (however small it may be) that DreamWidth users (even DW's staff!) might hate me for not wanting to leave LJ entirely. I've met plenty of people who are on DreamWidth and also still like LJ, but it's hard to convince myself that no one will hate me for it. (Probably because I'm still kind of traumatized by the events of last month when I had no idea what was going on at first...)

And it is going to be stressful for a while - my entries are copied over now, but my LJ was already kind of a mess that I've been trying for years to reorganize, and now my workload is more than doubled now that I have to make the same changes to my DreamWidth entries, plus fix things that didn't get copied over properly like videos and tags. And also manually copy over my entries from LJ communities to my DreamWidth in case any more of them disappear. :(

And it's not even October or November yet! (For the past several years, a lot of the things I ended up getting really worried about happened and/or were first discovered by me in October or November for whatever reason. I don't think I want to know what'll happen in October/November THIS year...)

Good luck with you and your life :D
And thanks for the comment on my journal!

Thanks! And you're welcome! :)
