Changing URL for LJ/DW? "Please do my homework for me" [Apr. 20th, 2012|05:01 pm]
Hey, folks. If I want to use LiveJournal or DreamWidth as a blogging engine, does anyone know if I can set it up so that people can browse my blog as LonghairedWeirdo.ShamanicWeirdness.com, say?

(Assuming I own the domain, which I do....)

I don't suppose it really matters, I'd need an LJ/DW account as a back-end. But I kinda like the idea of having "my" URL, even if it's just a cover for a backend account.

You could, possibly, set up a website with what we used to call in the olden days, an iframe and feed your LJ/dw through that... that might work.


It's usually used for videos but I'm not sure it wouldn't work. (enough negatives in that sentence, for you?)

work, but may not be ideal.

See http://wdy.me/jpalmer.html -- it works, but may be less optimal than using the CNAME method. I'll leave the link up for a week or so.

Yes, there are tools in the LJ code for it.

I have www.simonbisson.co.uk pointing at my LJ.
