Announcing a J-Land Activity: My Past Year in J-Land

                

I wanted to announce an activity for the upcoming AOL Journals 3rd Anniversary.

It's called     My Past Year in J-Land

I came up with this idea because I thought it was important to share about this past year.  So much has gone on this past year.  There have been many ups and downs.  I thought it would be important for each of us to capture this in an entry.

There are lots of things we could write about.

We have survived the ads situation, and witnessed our beloved Pam going to Heaven.

We could write about the new friends we have made in J-Land, about journaling, about why we like to journal, what we like to journal about, our favorite memes.  These are only suggestions.  Let's use our imaginations.

Why do I suggest we do this?  Because I believe a celebration is much deeper than a shouting of a Woo Hoo!  There has been much that has gone on in the past year that has made us a close knit community.  I want to celebrate and talk about those things about why we love each other.  Personally, I want to write about how others were there for me when my husband got cancer and had his bone marrow transplant.  People sent us letters and cards.  They sent John gifts and things he would need in the hospital.  They prayed for us and gave us constant support.  They still continue to support us on a daily basis.  I want to honor THIS in my journal.  This is how I want to celebrate the 3rd Year Journals Anniversary in J-Land.

On Monday, August 21, AOL Journals 3rd Anniversary, let's all write an entry in our journals.  We can call it:

                           My Past Year in J-Land

I can't wait to see you all's entries! 
Krissy :)

  18. Though in the beginning, I did not want to participate in the AOL celebration for personal reasons, your idea might just be the ticket to get my stubborn self in celebration mode. Thanks, Krissy. You're the consumate blogosphere diplomat and I love you for it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Krissy, I think I lead a pretty boring life, but Ill try very hard to send in a list of this last year!  It's not even a full year that I have been in JLand.  I don't have a digital camera, I gave it to my son, so I don't do pictures, much!  And I haven't met too many LASTING friends, but I have met SOME extra-ordinarily wonderful persons, and they have definitely made my life so much more pleasant!

  53. Rex, a pack of 52 was relatively high or low, resulting in contact with
    the metal cylinder. The license allows nonprofits to
    print up something that is attractive and looks a little bit different than
    all other stickers song task. They can bring out the
    emotion of the mother-to-be is perhaps one of the advantages
    of various printing processes, while effectively avoiding its shortcomings.

    Some things to remember: 1.
