2012 NOTE: Seven years ago there was a place on AOL called J-Land by the bloggers or Journalers who wrote there. Unfortunately, the powers that be pulled the plug on AOL Journals after those of us who wrote there took exception to having ads placed on our blogs. Why? Because we weren't being compensated. Over 200 people left for Blogspot and other places. And soon J-Land was history. However, I kept this post [and several others] even though they no longer link to anything. I have no idea who keeps linking to it, but it remains to remind me of some of the best writers we had.
Thought I would post this in case you're the only person who hasn't checked them out. I may even get around to making the links work. Actually, they already work, but not all the same way -- I'm too tired to 'splain. Mrs. L
