Hello, I'm new to LogJam, but I already like it! The only question I have is:

How can I preview an entry in my browser before I post it to LiveJournal?

You should have a "Preview HTML..." item in the Entry menu. If it's missing, you're using a logjam that was built without HTML support.

But if you want to preview it in your browser before you actually post it, the simple answer is, you can't. LiveJournal's servers aren't psychic. (Though I suppose, the source code being free, you could install your own local server.)

My suggestion would be to post it private, check it, make any needed edits, then change it to a visible status.

Thank you gaal and unixronin!

I think I would need to replace all empty lines with <br> to preview my post in my browser before posting.

unixronin's sugestion is not a bad one, the only drawback being that you have to be online to do this.
