Please check out the Directory of Blogs I am creating! It's called: from Jland to Blogger

Hi! It's so cool to be over at Blogger, in the sense that it is finally nice to have only one place to blog, instead of two. I have finally migrated from AOL journals to here! Yes, it took awhile -- John was in the hospital for about three weeks. And was sick about a week before that. So I am a month behind the rest of my friends who have moved over to Blogger. That's okay though, I'll just have to learn.

I've been very frustrated, though, LOL. I love learning new things, but it has been a little difficult. I want things to work and I want things to work now! Yesterday I had my All About Me Section disappear! I was able to add it back in by html code, though. I am getting a little smarter, LOL. I also keep having these wrenches appear, even after I sign out. Those of you who are on Blogger will know what I am talking about. Those wrenches that help you edit your widgets (gadgets) in the sidebar. Even after I had signed out, these wrenches kept appearing! I am thinking, "Okay, I am trying to make this blog look kind of nice, and everybody is seeing wrenches??? What's up with that? Not cool!"

Right now I am very frustrated, and want to go back to AOL Jland, LOL. I know things will be okay eventually in this blog service, but I am getting frustrated. Does anybody know the number of a REAL person to call if we are having problems? Or who to email? I know we can get in touch with Guido at Magic Smoke jlandhub, but, I mean I need to get in touch with somebody who is actually on Blogger staff. I have a support question to ask!

This bemoaning reminds me of something. I figured since we were all in this together -- we who moved from Jland to Blogger -- that we should have a Directory to find one another. That way we will always be sure we have each other's blog addresses when we need/want them. So I started a directory of blogs. Right now it is in it's infant stages, a collection of blog names and information. But eventually it will be more organized, and my hope is, a well used directory.

If you would like to be part of the from Jland to Blogger directory, just go to the blog (click on link I just gave you!) and put your blog name, and other information asked for, under the appropriate letter of the alphabet that your blog starts with. For example, my blog is Sometimes I Think, so I will put it under S. Oh, and if you would like, you can mention from Jland to Blogger in your own blog/journal, and ask others to come add their blogs to the Directory. That would be cool!

Okay, I will do another entry soon. John is doing a lot better, and I want to let you know more about what is going on with him. But first I have to let him use the computer, LOL, so he can tell others where his blog is!

For those of you who are not with Jland (hi Mississaugua, Ontario & Vienna Wien, Austria, and the rest of you all!), If I just proceeded to bore you, sorry. I will get to posting regularly again soon. I have lots of photos I have taken for the past month or so, and lots of stories to go with them! I want to show you the Light the Night Walk photos. The walk that John and I went on to help raise money to fight cancer. I also have photos of a cave we went in, a couple days after the walk. I have fascinating photos and stories to go with that. I also have photos of John at Hershey Medical Center, shingles and all.

Would you all all like to see the photos of John at the hospital, shingles and all, or is that too gross, LOL? I took them while he was lying there, and he said he doesn't mind if I show you...

Okay, I must get off and allow John to use the computer. Bye for a few, and love to you all, Krissy :)


  1. Krissy, I still have those wrenches on the side of my blog. I'm not sure if they've always been there because I've changed backgrounds and such so many times. How did you get rid of them? I just noticed mine today.

    Glad to see you and John are both here at Blogger. I do miss JLand. There weren't the choices but I didn't really miss them. Love ya!

  2. Hey guys, I am not finished reading the post but I wanted to jump in and tell yall what the wrenches are.

    They are the edit icon for your blog parts. If you click on a wrench it takes you to the editor for that widget or tool.

    Only you see the wrenches on your blog. When others go to your blog they don't see them. When you go to someone else's blog you don't see their wrenches.

    Back to reading now.

  3. Good to know John is doing better. He's even doing well enough to wrestle you off the computer! :)

    Play around with your settings and such. And get in touch with Kelly over at "The Chicken Chronicles...Again". She found some neato blog stuff site and has her site tricked out with some cool widgets and such.

  4. I am so glad John is feeling much better!!!

  5. Glad John is feeling better.It's no fun I had them...
    Love your idea from J land to blogger..That is quite an undertaking.
    I do miss J-land(I know I shouldn't say that since we got the bums rush).
    Hugs and prayers

  6. Love your idea of a Directory at our disposal, Krissy, I've registered and can see so much we'll either have to adjust to or keep whining about till they change it lol. My best to John.

  7. Glad to hear you made the move to Blogger!

  8. I already signed up for the directory and have told people in my journal too. As far as the wrenches go, I think you are the only one that sees them. What I mean is when people look at your page it's fine it's perfect. I never paid attention to mine and I'll have to look. This place takes some getting use to, but in the end it is okay. Alerts are the only thing I can't stand. I don't like searching for people to read. I hate dashboard. So usually I go from my list on the bottom of my journal. I just click down the list and hope I get everyone. I think you will do fine here once you get settled it just takes time and lots of it. I think I wanted to kick my computer the first week I moved. Heck, I still don't know how to do anything, but basic stuff so I'm okay with that for now. With the holidays approaching, I'm not worrying to much about it until after New Year's. Can't wait to hear your stories.
    Take care, Chrissie

  9. glad John is doing better and you are home!! thank you Lord! share with us any pictures you want, Krissy; I always love to see pictures

    thanks for creating that blog thingy for people's blogs; I'm heading over there now

    I think we'll get use to this in time, but it is challenging for sure to learn some new things here


  10. Hi Krissy!
    just finished transferring my journal from there to got a lot of catching up.
    take care,
    Gem :-)

  11. Hi Krissy,
    I did what you told me in making the text smaller-- but if you look at the posts before and after, you will see that they are smaller too. Thanks for the advice.

  12. this is a test. it is only a test! i am leaving a comment to myself to see if my comment alerts work. i only just figured out that i could leave comments to myself, LOL! or how to do it! well, i was doing it over in my other blog, the blog directory -- from jland to blogger -- our blog directory -- but i must have forgot to how to do it in here. because i wan't getting any comment notifications by email for this blog, and i was wondering how i would know who was saying what to me in here, LOL. i think i am going to die of laughter. i was missing people's comments. and i would say to them something about the last few days, and they would say, "i left a comment, sheesh, don't you even read what i write you?" i was feeling bad for not keeping up on my comments, and finding them all, when i remembered i could get them to my own email box, LOLOLOL. this blogger stuff is a little bit driving me nuts, LOL. okay, now i am going to go hit "Post Comment", and see if I get a comment to my mailbox it's been real!

  13. oh, it works! i am finally getting alerts to this blog! Sometimes I Think! I am so excited! Love, Krissy!


I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
