Okay, so this isn't exactly Journal Customization, but I've been browsing Journals and noticed a couple of people asking the general question on how to do some of these things... so here it is.
These tags can be used in your journal entries, as well as anywhere on the site you can use html coding to modify your journal/profile.
To do this, simply use this code : <lj user="username"> , where "username" can be replaced with the username of any journal account on blurty you would like to link to.
The code for this is <lj comm="community"> . Again, "community" would be replaced with the username of the community you'd like to link to.
3) The lj-cut tags:
<lj-cut> ... </lj-cut> , replacing of course the "..." with the html, text (or whatever that you want to have the link cut to from your main entry.) can be used in a journal entry to hide part of, or all of the entry. This is useful when posting a string of pictures or a particularly large block of text.
Anything placed in between the opening and closing tags of this code will be hidden. Anything posted before or after it will remain normal, as you can probably tell from the example above.
Normally, the cut link will say "Read more", but if you want to change it to say something else like "I am Super L337", you can write the tag as:
<lj-cut text="I am Super L337">
Here is an example of an lj-cut in use:
lj-cut tags are my absolute Favorite tag. I adore these little quizzes, but I hate reading journals who have them scrolled through the entire thing. If they're put in a cut tag like this, I can see it without taking away from the person's journal. I also like to use it when I post something fairly long like a list that most people probably don't want to look at. Like this....

4) <lj-poll> ... </lj-poll> can be used to post a poll in your journal.
5)<lj-raw> ... </lj-raw>. This tag is used to disable the way Blurty auto-inserts line breaks into your entries. This esentially does the same thing as using the "Don't auto-format" checkbox when making a journal entry, except it only effects the section of your post between the tags and not your entire post.
There are also three specific html tags that can be used to easily link to places within the Blurty website. These tags are:
Blurty News. This link to the news section can be coded like so:
<a href="lj://user/news">Blurty News</a>
Support Request #28 This links directly to Support Request #28. This is VERY useful when referencing support requests on the community for Support Volunteers. Code:
<a href="lj://support/28">Support Request #3777</a>
FAQ #92 This tag directly links you to whichever FAQ you specify by number. This is the code:
<a href="lj://faq/64">FAQ #64</a>
