This Journal will be moving

I just received an announcement (see below) that AOL will not be providing a blog service after October 31, 2008.  I do not want to lose my thoughts over the past 3 years that I have written in this journal so I will follow the instructions that I will receive from AOL on how to transition to another blogging service.  I obviously could not move all the entries manually, so I will wait for their instructions

Althought there have been over 11,000 hits, I don't know how many different people have read this.  I obviously don't don't know how many are complete strangers and how many knew me all those years ago.

Thanks for visiting.  I will keep everyone posted on the change of address



Dear AOL Journals user,

We’re sorry to inform you that on Oct. 31, 2008, AOL® Journals will be shut down permanently. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

It’s very important that you save your Journals content before the shutdown. We're working on a way to easily move your Journal to another blogging service -- you can expect an email within the next week with more details about how to do it. We want the transition to go as smoothly as possible for you, so you’ll have two choices. You can either save your information manually and find another place to blog on your own, or choose to automatically transfer your Journal to a different blogging service we’ve selected.

In the meantime, please bookmark the
People Connection Blog, where you can find out more about AOL Journals. You can also subscribe to the People Connection Blog RSS feed to stay informed about any changes. We’ll be updating the People Connection Blog often, so please check it regularly.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.


The AOL Journals Team

AOL is saying that all entries and comments will be moved to a Blogger blog, so be sure to get one. Stay tuned.

Bruce-I just opened up an AOL Account so I can post on your blog and now they are not providing a blogging service after 10/31/08. I am looking forward to hearing from you where your new blog will be and hopefully I can continue to post.-snofan1
