While I'm still reading journal entries I've also struggled to keep up with commenting. I really don't like this - I prefer to be engaged, and not be lurking in the background. I'm sure I've written about this a few months ago but I say again, sorry about that! I still care.
I've never been one for being all 'friends cut y'all' - if I do cut I tend to just do it, because I only cut people I'm not interacting with, barely or at all. I find I'm at that point now where, if I'm going to have any hope of keeping up and not just writing glib occasional comments, then I do need to pare back my flist.
It's not personal - it's making this manageable and meaningful. I'm seeing that new fandom friending meme go around and while it would be so nice to make new friends I'm not doing the long-term ones I've had here any justice, so I'm staying well out of that!
Please also take this as a reciprocal offer - if you feel we're no longer engaging well, or you're simply not interested in what I post anymore, please freely unfriend me with no hard feelings at all.
