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.

Re: sorry and why

You are very, very welcome to keep me on if you wish! Please don't see my decision as a desire on my part for you to remove me from your list. My decisions were only connected to my inability to keep up as I'd like, not any desire to push anyone away who'd like to read and/or comment.

(Though I respect it, I've never quite understood when friends are immediately reciprocally removed after a cut, unless the person has really been waiting for some kind of permission to remove the other friend.)

And thank you, for bringing yourself to this, even in these few comments. It is immesurably valuable.
the reason why I have made it a rule
to reciprocate when removed by someone is
because I have thought I owed it to the
rather large number of people who read my
journal to read theirs as much as possible
(when there is solid writing,as I noted in a
deleted because I posted too many in this
little business I do not read memes and
rants etc)but I dont know...maybe I will
add yours back, in any case it is no great
thing I talk too much sometimes
sorry again
