I was very upset the minute I saw the banner ads in my journal a few weeks ago, and was relieved when I found out I could continue posting ad free at AOL International Journals in the same format I've grown so accustomed to.
I didn't get angry enough to commit to doing what ever it takes to move until I read the kiss off letter from Bill Schreiner in Joe's Journal. Now successfully moving my journal and it's archives to Blogspot is a matter of principle rather than a matter of inconvenience and aesthetic discontent.
Why should I continue to be a loyal paying customer, when those providing the service openly admit that they could care less about any of us ... not to mention the fact that they are giving nearly everything I pay for away for free now?
Now that I've made the decision to move, I've closed down Dancing in the Rain International, my UK visit was great but never intended to be a permanent solution. All updated entries will be posted here to keep them organized until my archives are moved and I'm all settled in at Blogspot.
