Goodbye AOL

Goodbye AOL and thanks for the encouragement to move on and use better tools!

Just a quick note to anyone who hasn't moved their AOL Journal. I just did it and it went seamlessly. Seems that AOL actually did something right.... more likely someone over at Blogger, but let's give AOL the benefit of the doubt...

I put one last entry up over on my AOL Journal and plan to leave it up till the final day so people will be able to find my 'forwarding address'.

I named my imported blog Adventures of an Eclectic Mind - The 1st and don't plan to post over there. I am going to continue to post here and leave that blog as a collection of memories from the AOL years. I did put up one entry over there explaining what the blog was, what AOL did, and directing people here...... An era ends and a new one begins

I did have a few problems, and it took a few tries but I got my journal migrated here. It's separate but at least it's here. LOL...I've heard that Google bought AOL so I'm thinking that Blogger was behind the migration. xx

I did the same thing... kept my aol blog for an archive, it's called Wanderer. My new one is called A New Bridge. I"m hoping my former visitors and journal friends will follow me to blogspot! But I'm not a daily poster, so I'd understand if they didn't. Yes, a new era begins. bea

I was completely surprised when I opened my email and was able to transport my AOL journal without any glitches also! Thank goodness for whoever did the work, it was much appreciated. I agree, we all needed to kick the AOL habit and move on to better places. The information about photobucket was very informative! Thanks for posting it. :) Hugs, Kelly
