Well, I am gradually getting things added on this blog. We shall see what happens when they transfer our old journals over here. That is if they do successfully transfer them here and nothing goes wrong. If Jeannette's Jottings comes over then I shall continue in that and delete this one.

It is a lovely sunny day today but the wind is so cold and so very chilly. Nathan was in the newspaper yesterday. Last week he had his very first class photograph taken. There he was, right in the middle, smiling away. I wish I could share it with you but I am unable to do so. I would have to obtain the permission of every parent of every child.

It is sad to see our community breaking up. Some will not come here, some have already gone elsewhere, some are leaving AOL. They are dispensing with our journals because they say they do not make any money. Why is everything today based on greed? Some things are above money and J-Land was one of those things. It might not have bought them any money but it did give them prestige. I have readers in around twenty countries. How many of them might have come to aol because they were impressed with the journals and decide to try themselves? I think it is a decision that aol might well come to regret.

If anyone can tell me how to add animated graphics on here I would be very happy. I have obviously learned how to put in a picture and so could put in a static graphic but animated would be a different thing. All help appreciated.

Have a good day everyone.


  1. glad to see you're in better spirits. {{}}
    animated tags? i just put them in like i do any pic, & it comes out fine. i use photobucket as usual.
    have a good day.

  2. I like the look of things hon, I think it time it will get easier and easier to use. (Hugs)Indigo

  3. Hi Jeannette, see? You are doing well! It's excellent how much you did since yesterday. Congratulations! I might try to create a blog myself here sooner or later, time permitting. All the best. God bless!

  4. Go see Sonya at She can help with the graphics.

  5. Hello Jeannette,
    It has been awhile since I've talked to you, but happy to find you here in the new blog site. I wished you could have shared that picture of your grandson. I would have loved to have seen it. I will be back and added myself as a follower.
    I have set my journal up privately and will be happy to send you an email invite. All you have to do is click on the link and sign in with your email and you're good to go.
    I haven't added any ani tags yet so I'm sorry I couldn't tell you what to do.
    I know some have had problems uploading videos, but it might have just been a glitch of the day type thing.
    We all have a lot of learning to do here in our new homes.
    Take care, Chrissie

  6. It looks like you are mastering this journal very well. I know you have lots more than I do added to yours and it all looks great.

    Pooh Hugs,

  16. Sorry to be all behind with comments but you know what is has been like on here this week. Your journal is looking a bit more like itself now you are doing well. I too think AOL will regret cloding us down as a lot of us only stay because of our journals it's centainly not the service. Take care Love Joan.


Thank you for leaving a comment, it means a lot.
