Cathy / Life and Lessons

Cathy will be deleting her journal on Monday (27 October). She cannot cope with the transition to another platform, and is now reduced to writing by pen and paper. Please call round to her blog while it's still in existence (

Cathy is one of the true victims of AOL's callous decision to axe journals. We may have gotten new blogs here on Blogger, but she cannot follow.

J-Lander Loses Her Dad

Zoe has just lost her beloved Dad. Please visit and give her some support .

Dormant blogs

I repeat an earlier appeal for links to dormant blogs that people want preserved.
I also need to know whether it is OK to download blogs by deceased writers. So far, I have the following names:

Lahoma - mzgoochi
Kim - demandnlilchit
Jim - halliday0957
Barbara - babeboo73
Pennie - penniepooh
Pam - his1desire

Decisions may already have been posted elsewhere, but I need a central point to post this, so here goes.

I have a piece of software that allows me to download a journal. We can take a decision on the downloaded journals later.

Cathy / Life & Lessons

The majority of formerly J-land has now migrated to Blogger, and judging by the 800+ entries on Google Reader, is busy clattering away at their keyboards. Please spare a thought for the unhappy few who are unable to go through this humungous change.

Cathy, chatzeekay, left an entry on October 6th on her AOL journal Life and Lessons, saying she would not be able to make a new journal at Blogger, or wherever. She has suffered two severe brain traumas, the results of which have left her quite incapacitated. The entries, not spell-checked, speak for themselves.

Please call round, and ask if you can be put on an emailing list for her to continue beyond November 1st. Let it not be said that J-land (on Blogger or AOL) does not care for its less fortunate members.

I'm afraid I am unable to open this blog to all comers. I need a list of names of people who I can put up as authors. Anyone else who wishes to make a Call for Support should then contact these authors.

Sorry about this: a minus-point for Blogger.

Call for Support - continued

Call for Support will continue on Blogger. If anyone wants to keep the old journal, drop me a line. Please bookmark this blog; I'll dress it up later.

Edit (1.15pm): Will transfer old journal.
