LJ + syndication

Can someone with a paid LJ account do me a quick favor?

1. Visit http://www.livejournal.com/syn/
2. At the bottom of the screen, there's a box to "Add feed by URL." Type in http://fidesquaerensdotnet.wordpress.com/feed/
3. Comment here with whatever name LJ gives this feed.

I've not decided to move blogs or anything; I want to make sure I won't leave people behind. To do that I want to show them how this would actually work - how they could keep track of posts, comment, etc. So it helps to have things actually set up, just so I can "show, don't tell" as we writers are supposed to do.

Thanks!

It said that feed was not available.

What did it say, exactly? Do you still have the page up?

When I tried to add the feed, it told me "The URL you have entered is not currently being syndicated on this site but you must upgrade to a paid account to have the ability to create new syndicated feeds." This basically means you don't have a paid LJ account - and LJ only lets people with paid set this up for new websites. Was that it? Or was it something else? I'm just trying to figure out if the problem is on my end or LJ's.

Thanks for trying!

Mine said the first part, but not the paid part, because I do have a paid acct.

Step 1 syas:

"The URL you have entered is not currently being syndicated on this site. Please enter an account name to use to syndicate this feed. If you would like to change the URL of an existing feed, do not create a new account; instead, you can have the feed URL edited."
(my underlining)

You can then enter a name (15 letters max) and press a button that says "Create feed". Any naming suggestions? Apparently you can't use 'fidesquaerens', since it said that account already exists when I tried that...

I forgot about that extra step. How about the simply descriptive "martasblog" or something?

I have a plus account, rather than a paid account, but it seemed to work. Looks like it's calling you martasblogfeed. Here's what info I got:

Add martasblogfeed to your friends page?

Read entries by tags: martasblogfeed uses 0 tag(s). All entries can be read by default or you can personalize your feed to include/exclude posts tagged with specific words or phrases.
