AOL JOURNALS ARE UP AND RUNNING….AOL’s entry into the blog world, AOL Journals, is up and running. John Scalzi is their blogger-in-chief, joining the highly select group of people who are actually paid to blog.

This is great news, of course, since that increases my chances of someday being paid to do this from about .0001% to .00015%. However, I do have a complaint: apparently AOL Journals don’t allow you to leave comments unless you first sign in with an AOL screen name. I don’t have one, of course, and don’t really want to get one. Is this an attempt to wall off AOL blogs from the rest of the world, or what?

I would have left this comment on John’s blog, but, um, I couldn’t….
