I always feel awful for doing this, but the time has come for me to do a friends cut. Recently I fell behind on my friends list, so I decided to check on journals individually instead of scrolling through my friends page. While looking at my profile I quickly realized that there were a ton of people on my friends list that I haven't really connected with for whatever reason (which is just as much my fault as it is yours in many cases). As well, there were a whole bunch of journals that have been inactive for awhile both in terms of posting and commenting. I ended up being fairly thorough with this cut, more so than I have been in the past. I feel sad about cutting a bunch of people that have been on my friends list for a long time, as I was once quite close with many of you. I've just gotten to the point in my journaling life, though, where but for a few exceptions I don't want to keep journals around for pure nostalgia's sake. Sometimes people drift apart and it's just a sad fact of online friendships.
If you can't read this entry, then I'm sorry but you've been cut. I'm leaving comments open (screened, of course) if you want to talk about it. Otherwise I wish you well, as you're all awesome people, but sometimes friends lists just get unruly. As always, I'm perfectly happy to follow your exploits on Tumblr and have you follow me in return (I know many people have shifted their journaling focus to that site). Take care and I hope there aren't any hard feelings ♥.
