That’s done, and here’s some insurance

Well, I did it. I imported all my LJ posts into WordPress, in case the LJ Apocalypse happens. Backups, I can haz one!

Well, OK, that was just the excuse. I wanted to do it for a while anyway. The tools I used grabbed comments as well, so most of those have migrated over. I’m sure there’s stuff that will need cleaning up and all, but the bulk is done.

And now I know how to do it for Ursula’s stuff as well. Which will be nice as we get her new site rolling soon….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing. Some questions if you don’t mind:

    * What did you use to do the export/import?
    * Did you just do posts or comments to?
    * What do you do about protected posts?

    Thanks much!
