Biting the bullet - Friends List Amnesty Week

Copied from the journals of several friends:

I've seen several friends lately posting about trying to cut down their friends list, and sometimes worrying themselves sick over it. We all know that the reasons for making those choices are myriad, and often have NOTHING to do with whether one likes the person one is cutting.

Sometimes it's a function of no time, of trying to actually reply once in awhile to the friends one already has, or simply of "Gee, they're a really great person, but our interests just don't match at this time."

So.....I am declaring this week FRIENDS LIST AMNESTY WEEK. Anyone who wants to drop me, go right ahead. No explanations needed, and I promise I won't feel bad as if I'm boring or have offended you in some way.

Maybe you're just too busy. Maybe our interests have simply diverged as your life and my life have changed over the past year or so, and you've noticed you're skimming past my journal more often than not. Maybe you added me based on one post that struck you, thinking we had so much in common. Now you've discovered that we don't, really, but you're afraid dropping me will seem unkind.

Whatever the reason, it's okay. Prune away. :-)


[My personal addition to this - I won't necessarily drop you because you've dropped me, though I may remove you from some filters.  Or not.]
