I'll save $10 a month from this change, so of course I'm happy about it. My journal was the only thing keeping me on AOL, and I figured a day would come when I'd decide it wasn't worth it. I simply had not worked up the nerve, as yet, to bid farewell to more than two years of pictures and words that assist me in walking down memory lane whenever I wish.
AOL hopes to make a profit from their advertising now, and I'm already used to the ads.
Barring any unforseen problems, I'll stick around.
