Since AOL just cut us bloggers loose, I think that instead of "letting them move" my photos someplace else before New Year's, I will move them myself. After all, I really don't need them on the web except for those photos I have put into my blog. Which reminds me, when they shut down AOL pictures, what will that do to our old entries that have photos that reside on AOL pictures? Do we need to go back and replace photos in our old entries?
They switched my e-mail to cs.com a few months ago--sort of. Some people get my AOL e-dress on my notes, some get the cs.com tag (I knew there was a buyout/merger with Compuserve some time ago & I got switched back from cs to aol at that time.) I have opened a Gmail account, which I am going to be putting on all my official traffic from now on.
So once I have all the photos downloaded to disc and/or uploaded to a new website, maybe I'll just pull my business from AOL and close my account. I suppose they won't miss me much; I've only been a subscriber since 1996. I mainly have been loyal to them because I wanted to have accounts for my children. The children have migrated to their own service providers now, except for one, who leaves the computer unplugged most of the time to save electricity. She can open a low-cost People's PC account in her own name (she has dial-up still) or get a cell phone modem instead of AOL. We'll see how that goes.
