What a day! It took me hours and hours to copy and paste all my aol journal pages to word! I am one of the lucky ones there.. I've only had my journal for 1 1/2 months! Some have had their journal there 2 years!

Maxine says about how I feel right now lol.. I am one tired female! I am still learning this blog site. I hope the day comes when I am comfortable here.

I still haven't decided to leave J-land completely but I've accomplished the preparations just in case.. and from now on I will back up every journal I do so I don't have to go thru that again!

I already miss the "alerts" and seeing what the others have to say.. right now its all hurtful. A lot are staying because they are AIM journals and nothing changed for them. I hope I can get past this but so many people have made such good points. Most especially things like talking about a death in the family and seeing a "commercial" flashing at the top of your eyes.. sigh.. I am so mixed up right now. I just know I wish if someone gave you something they wouldn't give it with "stipulations" that they have the right to do with it what they want. I never would have accepted the "invitation" had I known.. and in that short time it has come to mean a lot to me .. so much that it hurts now.

Well, I know enough about business that they won't take down the ads.. they are "paid for" and aol won't give money back.. no company would. I hope they use their brains though and come up with a solution.. like a "hide" button for the ad. I think that would help a lot.. you still have to see the ad but then you can hide it while you read or work at the journal.

I guess time will tell...
Meanwhile.. have a good day.
All reports are in; life is now officially unfair.

Very good point, you made there. I'm not sure what I will do either, just yet.
