As winter woes have smacked some of us face down in the gutter, I am here to spread a little cheery sunshine by introducing some newbie Journalers for your arousal -- I mean, perusal.
AOL-Journals has never been smaller (as if) and lacking content (not true). Many of you have been begging for new reads. (ha!) Please Freeepeace, we're bored. What can we do? (yeah right)
OK, so it's more likely that (like me) you made a pact with yourself to stop reading new journals because it's nearly impossible to keep up with current reads. Yep, I hear ya. Yet, I still find myself visiting newbies all the time. I'm a recovering addict afterall. It's a tough one to kick.
Honestly though, every time I do visit a new journal, I'm like, what took me so long?
Thus leads me to my plight.
Since breaking my pact, there are a few journals that have become a regular daily click. Two of which I cannot go one more day without mentioning. It would be a shame not to share this information. It was fun at first, being one of a few to have these journalers all to ourselves. But they're just too good to go unnoticed. And you know, it's time to spread the wealth!

Meet Mikethedawg -- aka earpatchgoddess, aka Drew, aka Andrea's-friend-now-our-good-friend, Carol. Personally, I love her journal screen name! She's the last of the YakYaks to join J-Land.
Her writing is honest and raw with weaves of humor and a base of humility. Reading her is like getting subtle -- and not-so-subtle -- reminders of the universal truth that resides in us all. She has me laughing and crying in the same entry. I'm often left wondering, how does she know all this stuff?
But don't just take my word for it. See for yourself. Hop on over to her journal where you will surely understand why this old soul was conjured up By Popular Demand!

Next up - Aileen! I actually found her through Andrea. I was hooked by her journal description alone:
If you thought AOL Journals were screaming for a vapid and thoughtless alternative to those annoyingly deep and thought-provoking entries out there... Welcome to my humble abode!
Crass and funny as hell, she writes with witty intelligence. A former flight attendant turned optician, about to embark on a cross-country journey to plant new roots ... in Vegas, of all places. ;) My only wish is that she'd update more often. Maybe if we cheer her on...
Her Waste of Space is anything but a waste of space. It's no place for the kiddies, unless of course, they're smart-mouthed 9-year-olds from a Park called South.
