Journals break

I continue to be on journals break. I am only making entries to help everybody in amongst the carnage, caused by the announced shut-down of AOL Journals. You'll find those on Magic Smoke. I am pissed off beyond belief.


  1. You're not alone,Guido....this really frosts my cookies!!! dang it!
    You're also doing a great job posting on Magic Smoke....THANK YOU!

  2. You are not the only one pissed off Guido in fact I could put it in stronger words if I was not a lady.  I was assured by Vish that things like my visitors map, web-tracker, Technorati Gizmo, charity sites - in fact everything on my sidebar could be done just the same there.  Not true.  I have set up a journal and spent the entire evening trying to find a way and have found nothing.  I do not think I shall be staying

  3. Guido, what is the process for moving my journal to blogger?  I have 3 journals that mean the world to me.  And yes, I am so pissed off right now I could scream.  Blessings, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

  4. This makes me so sick...I don't even know if I have the brains or energy to try and figure this all out.

  5. Never heard you say you were pissed off, before... I'm scared!!  Jk.  I hope you'll link us all to your new journal.... looks like most are going to Blogspot... hope I can figure out how.... LOL!!!  I'm SO tech challenged... LOL!!


  6. You and me, both, Guido.  Pissed off is a mild term in this case.  I stood by when everyone else was shredding AOL for all their faults and weaknesses.  Now this.  I do feel a bit betrayed.

  7. I just feel so badly let down and dumped regardless of my paying good  money as a member of AOL.  The journals are the only reason I come on-line.  Apart from keeping in touch via e-mail with family & friends.
    I shall away and see if my old brain can work out how to follow your instructions or suggestions you mention that you have placed on Magic Smoke Guido.
    What a dreadful shock to think we might all become fragmented to different places and loose touch.


  8. You & me both, Guido....you & me both. I do hope you come over to Blogger, I'd hate to see those money grubbers, AOL, break our J-land family apart forever. They have just screwed us over with no care to what they are destroying. You have been a blessing....

    Pooh Hugs,

  9. Ah, ha!  I think the "pissed off" comment is what may have gotten you blocked from Magic Smoke.  They only want happy little campers who will gratefully accept their assistance as they prepare to "sunset" out journals.
