Dazed, lost and confused

Nowt new there i can here everyone who read my other journal shouting at their screens :o) Am totally useless when it comes to technical stuff on here...This is follow on from my upsides, downsides and inbetweens journal on AOL...That wonderful lot who have decided blogs ain't important so we're gonna do away with them...AOL was at one point an innovative and forward thinking ISP...Over the last few years they have receeded more and more to not even being an ISP anymore...What was innovative and people copied is now deemed not good enough for AO and all because it doesn't bring in money...Blogs are something that many people read, tv programmes have them, tv programmes have been made about them (belle de jour or however u spell it) newspapers have them, journalists have them...Hey everyone and their aunt has them apart from AOL come halloween...AOL want money and the only way they can do that in the UK now is from advertising...Well they're not gonna have much to advertise if they do away with every community based element...I can see AOL disappearing permanently soon to be honest

Anyways enough moaning about them am here now and LOST...How do i add pics that aren't one of me to my sidebar???? How do i add anything to my sidebar???? How do i make my own layout as the choices are pants???? Erm how do i do anything on here would sum it all up :o)

I hope Aol cease to exist as well, they damn well deserve it. They said we cost them money, will they are losing a hell of a lot more now because many are cancelling their subscription. Ok we are owned by Carphone but AOL must get a rake off still as we are using their name

If you go into layout on dashboard you click on add gadget. A list of things then comes up, add pictures, add video etc. etc. Click add picture and you can add one directly from your computer. Press save and that is it. If you fiddle around with it , it will come. If I can learn it anyway can.

AOLs downfall is their own doing, they started to tear the community apart acouple of years ago and this is the final nail in the coffin.

Hi Caff, I wouldn`t be at all sorry if AOL go under. They have certainly been biting the hands that feed the ie. us, the subscibers. Hopefully they`ll lose so much business that their so-called service will go kaput!

Hello our Caff :o) You can find heaps of different layouts online, just have to google 'blogger templates'. As for all the other stuff... I'm as confused as you are!

I hate AOL for doing this to us, but am so glad that we're all sticking together despite them.
