If someone can tell me a speedy way to get 2,000+ journal entries from LJ to DW, that would be lovely. I'd like a backup just in case. After months of trying, I've yet to figure out how to do it. I mean I know you can import but the problem is the massive amount of information that I'm trying to import. I can't leave my macbook hooked up for days while I wait for an import to finish. :(

i really don't know of an easier way to do it, but if you don't want to leave your macbook up that long, maybe do one at a time?

Hi there! I saw your post on the Latest Things page and just wanted to tell you that you don't have to keep your computer connected in order to use the content importer -- just put in your username and password and start the import, and then you can wander away and do other things, close your computer, move to alaska, etc, for as long as you want while the importer runs. It does it automatically for you in the background and you don't have to worry.

You're welcome! If you run into trouble, our support volunteers will be happy to help you. (Also, don't worry about having 2000 entries -- the importer can handle that with no problem. It's only when you start getting into hundreds of thousands of entries or comments that we wind up having to babysit the import on our end to make it work, really!)
