J-Land No More???

So, here we are (at least some of us).

As a person who works in an environment where change is non-stop, this has been a learning experience. I actually find some aspects of this new home, that frankly, are not too bad :o)

In order to make a clean break from AOL Journals, I think we need a different name than J-Land. I acknowledge that there are a lot of fond memories in J-Land, but we need to create new memories here, both with old friends and some new friends. I notice that I have some new "followers" that were not part of AOL, so again, I say, lets make a new start.

So, I recommend we retire the J-Land moniker, and come up with a new one.

I got the following idea from an entry at Coastal Comfort II. I say, lets call ourself "Spotters" in honor of our new home at BlogSpot. Let me know what you think, or leave a comment with an different suggestion.


  1. I'm cool with Spotters! I read a great comment from Mort over on AOL where he wrote that J-Land isn't a place...it's all of us. We may have moved to a different forum, but that doesn't mean we can't keep the same sense of community we had over there. I know it's been rather shocking, but I have to say, I'm getting a bit of a charge out of trying something new!


  2. It's going to take a while before we can let go of that name J-Land I think, but I agree that it will be better for us if we do. I think Spotters is cute, and I can't think of anything any better. I'm already getting a sense of "home" and "comfort" when I look at my blog page because of the pics and names in my sidebar.

  3. Spotters sounds fine with me. You are a true thinker huh Ken. LOL.
    Hugs, Joyce

  4. Sorry, but Spotters does cut it with me. I'll always think of WWII or miscarriages! No offense, Hugs and happiness, Dannelle

  5. Spotters sounds good to me.

  6. we are all learning and I agree JLand is something we should cherish but we need to move on. I think we will like it here once we get the hang of it.

  7. "Spotters" I like. It's much better than "bloggers." Besides it rhymes with squatters, plotters, knotters and yachters. I say let's go with spotters.

  8. K sorry but the first image that came to mind with spotters was a group of women on that time of month...yeah, I know I think my mind is going from contractors hell...(Hugs)Indigo

  9. +
    Bucko "spotters": is not winning unanimous approval. You don't want to go with "googlers" do you?

  10. I like the name Spotters... why does that sound SO 'English' to me. I like it!!



Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
