Here are some links for those interested.
The first is a way to track what's going on with the ads. It will link you to what folks are writing. Please, add it to yours, too.... click: AntiJournalAds.
Second, is an article written about our situation in JLand. We have gotten press! (I know, I know, I'm late..... but this was the last thing on my 'to do' list for the day... even if it is tomorrow :) click to read: BusinessWeek.
Third, and most likely final as I am tired now.... is an article from when AOL/TW acquired Weblogs,Inc. I find it interesting, maybe you will to. Click for that: TW October
Anyone who is interested in helping get rid of the ad banners, there is a group trying to do so. You do not have to leave AOL, or move your journal (I got that straight from the top!). All you need to do is add your voice (and name) to the list. Of course, any input is welcome. Click: Stop Journal Ads
I think, for now, I am just using this journal to relay information to those who aren't leaving. I got the idea from Brian, and I think its a good one :)
If you want a sign for your journal, go here: Untitled States
K, that's it. I marked it off my list....
