Sorry, I don't normally make a big friends cut like this, but back in Nov & Dec my friends list greatly expanded. Not every friendship was destined to last, and I am finding myself with less and less time for the internet these days. I was recently cut by a long time friend on here, so I guess that sort of sparked it. LJ is LJ and after awhile, new journals replace the old forgotten ones. So the cycle goes.

If you feel this was in error let me know why and I'll consider trying again.

Yeah, I know how that goes. The f/lists seem to grow like weeds sometimes.

I always get way more response to add me posts that I imagine. That's why I only do them every 1-2 years. lol

I do too, but then half of them dropme, LOL. I no longer post to the add_25+ type communities. I post to the anime addme and they tend to retain like 95%.

I periodically cut as well. I'm about ready for that now as my f-list has expanded to over 100 people.

Yeah, I started with 117 and it was getting to be too much. Some people update after being in hiding, and I struggle to make the connection as to who they are and why they're on my friends page.

My days are so packed now. Serenity is a little older now so I can spend an hour or so doing dinner within earshot of her, but when there is another child in the house I am glued to them. Thank you, I am doing so much better! I worked again today. :)

sometimes you just have to do a cut. I don't do them often but sometimes it's just necessary.

I rarely do them. I normally just cut people I don't click with when the time comes, but there were a lot I felt didn't read me or abandoned their journals so I did all at once... I want to devote what LJ time I have to those who do the same for me.

I haven't done a cut in ages, I think I'm due for one as well. My list isn't growing, but I haven't heard from most people on my fl for some time...

I know how you feel though it does suck being cut by a long time friend, sometimes with no explaination.

I know I say this often, but I give what I'm given. That doesn't mean I want people to comment to me all the time, but I do like to know that you have some kind of interest in my journal by at least keeping up with what's going on in my life. I know this is a blog/journal/the internet, but I am writing about the ins and outs of my life, and I don't share that with just anyone.

The long time friend... well, some people disappear for months and months at a time. Then they come back out of nowhere like they were never gone. They don't comment to me so I don't comment to them, and I guess they thought I wasn't there. No loss. I give what I'm given, like I said. She just reminded me that it doesn't matter how long someone's been on your list, you can be cut anytime. That's the LJ cycle.

I rarely do cuts but when I do, that means something has warranted one. Some who have added me realised that my LJ wasn't for them so they took me off within a couple of days. Meh, oh well.

I'm as random as can be. I don't expect people to comment all the time. Comment when you want on what you want. Comment often on one entry if you wish. Spam my LJ. It truly doesn't bother me whatsoever.

I have to make more of an effort to comment on yer LJs. I feel bad for not commenting as often as I wish but I honestly do read all entries.

It's understandable that you're too busy to keep up with the internet.

hey! how can i get in touch with you these days? i'd like to send you an email or chat on msn without posting everything public on here.

It would help if you told me who you are. lol I don't make my email address public. I can always be reached by email by my screen name at livejournal dot com.
