So this is my first cross post from WordPress. Considering there isn't a service that enables direct cross posting/sharing between Livejournal and WordPress, figuring everything out was a bit of a headache until I found this post ( http://www.lexislounge.net/2007/09/publish-your-blogger-blog-to.html )  detailing how to make use of Livejournal's email posting.

Instead of having a direct posting connection between WordPress and Livejournal, I added another connection, which is Dreamwidth.

DreamWidth was not necessary to enable the crossposting, but I added it as an backup/archive account. My Dreamwidth username is nibblezz ( http://nibblezz.dreamwidth.org/ ) . This is how my cross posting works:

Post from WordPress goes to email subscriber (DreamWidth's special email posting address) > Posts to DreamWidth (account is set-up to automatically cross post to my livejournal) > WordPress post appears on Livejournal.

There are a few kinks to work out such as the post formatting, but I'm sure in time I'll figure out how to make the posts less cluttered with all that category junk WordPress adds to it's email subscriptions.
