So i got a lot of comments asking how to use gifs in journals so i will teach you all!
alternative text

1.) Ok step one find a gif of your choice (i usually look them up on google and on tumblr)
alternative text

2.) Copy the image address (you do this by right clicking the gif and click on "copy image address")
alternative text

3.) then when your on your journal put this address in
< img src="filename.gif" alt="alternative text" width=X height=Y >
(i put spaces in-between < and > so you can see the address just make sure you get rid of the spaces)  
alternative text

4.) where it says "filename.gif" put in the image address and with x and y put in the size you want (i usually use 300 or 200 for x and 200 or 100 for y)
alternative text  

5.) AND NOW YOU HAVE WONDERFUL GIFS FOR YOU JOURNAL!!!!!

It works on the journal but not in the comments....When I put the " after the url address they disappear, is it normal?

Hmmm sometimes it goofs up. Just to make sure make sure there are NO spaces, it only works on journals, sometimes some gifs are stubborn and wont work, the best one are from tumblr, and if thats doesn't work we will try and figure it out :D

Does this work on your profile as well because I'm trying to "update" my profile and I want to put Gifs on it and I don't know how.

It thought it does work on profiles because I've seen other profiles that have Gifs on them such as Avidityy 's profile and it has Gifs on it.
