Making Myself at Home

Well, I am starting to make myself at home here. It is kind of nice to be able to edit the template of my blog to have what I want there. Hmmmm.... maybe this will be the push I needed to relearn HTML and to learn CSS. I used to play with HTML back in the early days, but I'm sure I have both forgotten a lot and there has been a lot of new options/codes added.

If you look to the right hand column of this blog you will see I haven't completely forgotten how to write simple code as I have added a Copyright notice and a blog listing to my sidebar. Actually the blog listing was supposed to be web links. I copied the code into my template, then changed the title and disabled the links that came with it till I have a chance to replace them with links to other blogs. Trying to do something like this? E-mail me and we'll try to work it out for you!


Well, now that I have that link for blogs in my sidebar I suppose I'm going to have to go out and collect all of my friends new blog addresses and sort out who has a new place and who can still be found at their old AOL journals. Well, I guess that is what weekends are for.
One of the hardest things is to remember to call this a blog now and not a Journal .

I guess the next thing to try is putting a picture in here... here goes... A little dose of cuteness for you... if it works!

Well, That seemed to work just fine . O.K.... we are getting the hang of things over here now!

Things are starting to look up now that I am getting things figured out and set up the way I want. I'm still having issues commenting on some of the blogger blogs, so if you haven't heard from me, that doesn't mean I haven't found you... I just am having issues!

Well, at least I know where to find you, and that's the important thing. I won't be leaving AOL, as I have way to much other things going on in my life to worry about that darn ad on the top of my journal! lol I do respect you and the others for taking a stand against it all though.
I put you in my favorite places so that I can continue to keep in touch.. :)

Morgan is always the cutest! I'm so glad I found ya! I got you in my links already.

I'm hoping I simmer down sometime soon, so I can start writing happier entries.

The first day, I was completely lost. I'm starting to really get the hang of this now though.

We will survive!

Thanks for leaving a trail of crumbs so I could find you. I did make a small stand; I called AOL and told them to cancel my account. When asked why, I told them about the ads in the journals. I do not plan to leave, but at least perhaps someone made a record of my complaint. They gave me a free month's service, so about mid-December I'll call and tell them I changed my mind and I'm staying. Mosie1944

Welcome to the new neighborhood -- new friends, old friends and some different options for blogging. Geesh, AOL sure got a lot of folks' underwear in a bunch! Didn't they? When the dust settles I'll be here...and there.

Hey Girl........I really hate being uprooted! lol I like blogspot too, but I don't know how to find any of my friends over here or know when they have posted something new.So I jumped ship over the the AOL UK spot...at least I don't have to put up with those obnoxious banners (yet) Here's my link!

so glad you are here. I am trying to figure out how to utilize the space in the html code that allows for an extra paragraph of text... I keep doing it but cannot see it yet. Still working on that one.

I will be adding a copyright notice too.... good idea.

Welcome to blogger gf! I think you'll like it here. I'll be changing your URL on my blog roll to reflect your new home address. Keep in touch!

Visit Emmapeel. She's got a great sidebar list, alphabetized (!) and is willing to share both the instructions AND the list. Whew. I was bugged that I still haven't figured out how to do that and I can't sit still long enough to try.
