From Livejournal to WordPress

Just migrated from my live journal blog to the wordpress one. It was way too simple.

  • Go to admin page
  • Click on the tools menu on the left
  • Click on import
  • Import from livejournal
  • Provide your LJ names and password etc.

The only issue i had was with the posts which had images and embed videos. Had to update their markup a little bit.

WordPress seems to have a bunch of awesome features which made me move to it.

  • Cool widgets like being able to add twitter, my links module etc
  • Stats are made available automatically
  • Multiple blogs with same identity
  • Static pages
  • more?

I was considering blogger as well. This link helped me decide.

Not sure what i ll be missing though. Friends/communities? Lets see.
