Well, after thinking long and hard about this (over the course of several months), I've decided to do something I've never done before. I've removed a few people, to get my f-list back to a more manageable size. Because as it stood, with 175 friends, I just didn't have time to read all the journals I had friended, plus, I find myself wanting to spend less time on the Internet these days, rather than more. So, if you've found that I've defriended you, PLEASE don't be offended. It's not because I don't like you . . . it's because I don't know you. It just means that you don't comment much (or ever) in my journal, and I don't comment much (or ever) in yours, and I don't know you well enough to have what I'd consider a meaningful "online relationship" (and I'm assuming that you'll agree with me about that, since, well, see above about the mutual lack of commenting). However, if you have been quietly reading and enjoying my journal, and would like to continue doing so, please comment here, and I'll be happy to add you back, so you can still see the f-locked stuff.
