Whether you imported your LiveJournal account or not (my opinion: you should; then you will have continuity), you should also remember to claim your LiveJournal OpenID, which is a non-obvious part of the LJ-to-DW transition process. Go do this now to save yourself and other people headache.
(Why? When you import your LiveJournal account, you create subscribe-and-access links to a bunch of LiveJournal people, but you still exist twice, according to DreamWidth -- once as "you.dreamwidth.org", and once as "you.livejournal.com". So if people imported their LiveJournal accounts, and have you as friends, you still won't be able to see them, because they gave access to your LiveJournal instance; you need to link the two, so that DreamWidth knows that they actually meant to give access to your DreamWidth instance, too. For bonus points, this also means that all of the comments that got imported by your LiveJournal name into other people's journals will now be attributed to your DreamWidth name, too.)
