Do you already have a DW account?

Hokay - click the "import Journal" link from this page: https://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=127

That walks you through it so clearly I was able to do it on my phone while sitting at the airport.

Go to Dreamwidth (sorry but that's two syllables).

Create account.

Click "organize" tab,

Click "import content."

Follow instructions.

It took approximately 20 minutes for all my stuff to import.

If you do not have a paid account (I don't) it will only import your current default user icon.

That's all I know so far, but it was very easy.

I have a paid LJ and a free DW
I only use one icon, however

Once you've set up your Dreamwidth account, follow these prompts:


Be warned: Since everyone and his Uncle is backing up their LJ on Dreamwidth right now, this process may take longer than usual.
