I have to learn a lot about Live Journal.
I feel almost as lost as I did back in the days of USENET.

First what is GIP?
Does live journal allow for RSS feeds? In paid subscriptions it mentions something about RSS, but I can't find it in a help file.

How do you make the Icons that show up next to your posts?

I've been on the net for 12+ years and I'm a newbee again, with the whole BLOG thing.

GIP stands for Gratuitous Icon Post. When you don't have anything to say, but you want to show off an icon. :)

RSS, I'm still unfamiliar with, so I can't answer that.

Icons require graphics programs such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. I use Photoshop. You can just take a picture and crop and resize to 100x100 and use that as an icon, but the pretty ones require graphics work.

There are icon request communities, where you can ask someone for a specific icon. Like if you wanted a tiki. :) Or a parrot. Or something. Then whoever makes you the icon, you just credit them in the comment section.

I can make you icons if you want. :)
