Friends list trimming

See, I don't know how to do this stuff, except just to do it and hope it works out. Seems like everybody's doing it...

I've been overwhelmed on a few fronts lately. Among them, I've had way more friends listed on LJ than I can really keep up with reading or commenting on—I've tried default views and such, but they aren't helping. So I've done a massive cutback of a full third of my listed friends (from around 180 to around 120). And I may still add and subtract; I'm just trying this out.

If you've been removed, please don't take offense or feel like you have to do anything at all. I write relatively few protected posts, so you won't miss much if you still read. And I will probably still read many of your journals separately from my friends list, and may add some back (I'm new at this). If you'd like me to be more involved in your life than you think I will be without you on my daily list, please let me know that!

Thanks for understanding. There are many times I wish I didn't have limits, but that's the road to idolatry.


I don't know how you can even keep up with 120! I have another friend who did this and went from like 200 to 50. And then there are those who have the max amount allowed, over 700. I guess it all boils down to the purpose of the friends list.
Honestly, I'm not sure I'm done—another reason why I don't want being on my friends list to be something that anyone uses to measure their worth. I haven't done the best job keeping up and I'd like to do better at being present within limits (both here and in my daily life).
700?!!!!!!!!!!! *shock*
