Thanks to the power of technology, there is finally a way to cross post from Tumblr to Livejournal and/or Dreamwidth.
HOW TO HOW DO
Get yourself a free account at IFTT (if this, then that) https://ifttt.com
Then go to this recipe: http://ift.tt/1hnMOl8
and activate it. You’ll need to connect your Tumblr account to IFTTT, as well as your email - I’m using Gmail so I connected my relevant email account.
Then, and this is how I do it, I set up my Dreamwidth account for the postings, because I have DW crosspost all entries to LJ automatically.
In DW: Go to your account settings at http://ift.tt/1KtRNfZ
, then select Mobile:
In the box, enter whatever email address you connected in IFTTT. For your pin, go crazy but note that DW doesn’t save capital letters in the pin.
Then string together your account name with your pint in the following form: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now head back to your IFTTT recipe box:
And enter in that email@example.com into your address bar.
YOU’RE SET TO CROSSPOST.
A word of caution: This recipe will crosspost EVERYTHING on Tumblr, both your new content and all your reblogs. You can turn off the automatic push in the recipe’s top right-hand corner:
And then turn it on just before you make a super-important post. Like this one.
You can also cross-post just those posts with a specific tag. Draft workflows are

So far its REALLY not working for me but hopefully it will for you?
