Welcome to LiveJournal

Congratulations, you now have your own blog!
And here’s the small instruction that will help you to start your LJ-life.

Find new friends

The word “friends” in LiveJournal means the blogs of people you want to read. You don’t need to know someone personally to add him to your Friend list. You can read the entries from the blogs you added to the Friend list on your Friends page.
After that everything depends on you: write entries to your own blog, read communities and find people who share the same interests with you!

Customize your journal

If you want to change the look of your blog you can customize it according to your taste:

  • think about the journal title and subtitle;
  • change the design theme of your journal;
  • customize it by choosing mood themes or changing texts of the links
and much more!

Upload a userpic

Userpics are icons or avatars used to represent yourself, your moods or your interests, etc. They are displayed in many locations on LiveJournal next to your username. You can upload your userpics here.
Learn more about userpics.

Add some information about you

Fill in the profile of your journal: add your interests, write a small text that describes you. And don’t forget to specify the country you live in in the field “Location” so that you can get interesting and important news about LiveJournal in your region.

What are communities?

Communities are journals where many users post entries on the similar topics. There are thousands of different communities in LiveJournal and you’ll definitely find something interesting.
Check the most popular LJ communities.
After you find communities you like just join them to post your entries there and read new entries in your Friends page.

Start writing!

It’s really easy to create a new entry: simply open the “New entry” page and write! You can find a way to this page from the menu on any page: just use "" button.

Learn more about posting to your journal.
Here are some tips about creating an entry:

  • add pictures and photos: just use special buttons on the Post an Entry page;
  • use an "LJ-Cut" to hide everything underneath it with a link;
  • add tags – words of short phrases used to organize your entries in the journal.

Control who can read your journal entries

When you post an entry, you can choose a security setting which controls who can see your entries. There are several options:

  • Public (visible to everyone who reads your journal);
  • Friends-only (visible only to people on your Friends list);
  • Private (visible only to you).
