I'm sorry, I must have misunderstood. When I made the offer to have a tech try to import the journals into the blogs, I didn't see any interest in that. Most people said no and wanted to look for another option. At this point, the best we can do is to have a tech export entries to a text file which will be done for anyone that wants them upon closing the blogs.
I am not sure if I care whether my old journals get put somewhere for me....but I would really like somehow to be notified of my blogroll friends updates on their blogs.... On the theme I am using, I don't even get the shortened version of updates. Is there someway to do this?
