Ugh, I feel awful about doing this because I did a friends cut a few months ago but I'm afraid I have to do a pretty major cut. I've felt disconnected from LJ recently and reading/commenting on my friends list has sadly become a bit of a chore. I went on hiatus not only because of time constraints due to my job and my move, but also because I just haven't been into LJing lately.
It shouldn't be that way, so I'm cutting down to a smaller, core group of people who I feel I've become close to and with whom I interact with on a fairly regular basis. I cut people if we never really talk and habitually seem to pass over each other's entries, if you've been inactive for several months, or if we just never really clicked. It's not fair to any of us if there's a lack of interest and interaction. Truthfully, it's nothing personal. I just don't have the time or energy for a large friends list where I don't really know
a good chunk of the people. If I've removed you I'd appreciate it if you'd remove me in return (and if you happen to be reading this because you've added me and I haven't added you back, I'd ask you to remove me as well because I don't friend people who randomly add me).
This friends cut is pretty much final, however, if you really want to talk about it and/or want to be added back you can comment and I'll consider it (comments are screened). I had to cut a few long-time friends who I haven't heard from in awhile, so if you suddenly decide to re-engage with your Livejournal let me know and I'd be happy to add you back. But, a lot of people seem to have migrated to other social networking sites and I'd be perfectly happy to follow and be followed by any and all of you on my Twitter and Tumblr (here
In happier news, the move went well. We're still unpacking and sorting things out, but I'll hopefully be back to a more regular posting/commenting schedule soon. ♥ you all.
