Cleaning House

Due to my massive F-list and the surreal amount of time it takes me to stay caught up on LJ, I have had to clean out my F-list. If you were removed, please don't take it personally. I tried to only remove folks who had not friended me, never commented, and/or never reply to my comments. Now, I don't feel people have to friend me back in order for me to enjoy reading and commenting on their journal, but if they continue pretending I'm not there or ignoring my input, then it's a waste of time & energy.

I've also removed myself from a few communities that no longer hold my interest. This is not a reflection of the communities, but of my own personal interests at this time.

Thank you for enjoying the ride with me for a little while.

To the rest of my friends, I have several filters - 'personal', Reiki Master, & Ladies Only. If you're not on one of these and you'd like to be, please let me know.

Namaste.

You hardly ever comment on my journal.

I'm sorry! For the past month or so, it's all I can do to read them all. Every time I try to get caught up on my F-list, I have to go back somewhere between 500-1000 entries. o_0 I always try to comment if I feel I have something to add, and I always try to respond to folks who comment on my journal. I read all your entries, but I'll work on being more mindful of commenting.

yeah...92 friends would be tough to keep up with! If you need to prune further it's ok if you want to remove my name [since I am so new:) Plus alot of my posting is nonsensical.]

I still know where to find you :) We've got kushiels communities in common.

Are you kidding me? I like you. You're not getting off that easily...

And 92 is the 'pruned' number. LOL

You're on the RM & Ladies Only filter, but don't appear to be on the kinky filter. Did you want to be?

I can't imagine keeping up with all the friends you have. I barely manage with the 30 or so I've got.

It's gotten hard lately. And apparently I don't comment enough. :( I'll work on that.

You are fun to read though.

Filters are just custom friends groups that you make. This tells you all about it. To be on my Ladies Only filter would work as follows: I go to 'manage friends' from my user info page, and created a 'custom friend group'. I named it Ladies Only. Then I move which members want to be on there into that group. Then, when I'm posting, I have the option of "Friends Locking"...same place gives you a 'custom friend' option, where I lock it under Ladies Only. Then only the people in that group have access to that post.

Anyway, if you're curious about more info on the other....information is always linked in my profile page. :)

yay I made it!
Which filters am I on?
Also..My boyfriend and I are starting a group in the greenville area of SC for BDSM..and I wanted to invite you..we haven't figured out when our first munch will be..but we're trying to work with everyone's schedules..also I'm not sure how far you are into this..but if you ever wanted to have a double date of sorts..even if you wanted to bring the kids it'd be great (I loveeee kids!) but we love doing that sort of thing. Though that might have to wait until after october/gatlinburg trip.
I'm rambling! I need to go to bed now :)

Hi! It doesn't look like you're on any of my filters. I tend to only add folks who specifically ask, as I don't like to assume. Just let me know which ones you'd like on. If, as my friend above ;), you need info, I try to keep all of that in my profile.

I'd love a chance to come down and meet in person some time. Greenville is a bit far for us, seeing as how we have some car issues. Maybe after October that would be fixed. I've never been to a munch yet, but I am on some local online groups. My Beloved is still a bit nervous about sharing anything with actual RL people, LOL, but I'm hoping one day when the kids are wee bit older I'll be able to talk him into getting out into the scene a bit!

Ladies only? What do you talk about there?

Jun. 16th, 2006 05:08 am (UTC)
Heya! I was just thinking about you not an hour or so ago...

So far I haven't talked about anything there. I just made it. I figure it will be a place to discuss such lady troubles as those I bemoaned behind the lj-cut in this post. I suspect it might also be a good outlet to rage against men, if need be, LOL. Just the kind of more private female aspects that I might not want to share with the menfolk.

I know how it is. I don't have nearly as many friends as you, and some days it seems overwhelming. Especially when I spend over an hour just typing out replies!

I'm very glad to have you on my list, though. *hugs*

Aw, thanks! I'm glad to have you, too. *double hugs*

Yeah, yesterday was supposed to be my housecleaning day, then I looked at the clock and realized it was 4 already! I decided to make my friend-friends (lol) priority, so that hopefully I'll eventually return to the land of flesh-and-blood. ;) I still may have to cull my communities further, but we'll see how I handle this for now.

Yeah, I tried to cut back on the folks that I felt I didn't have a real 'established relationship' with. Hopefully this will enable me to be better about commenting. I tend to *not* reply if I don't have anything to offer, but I read everyone. I'm particular about it, too. If I miss a few days, I can't just read the recent entries. I have to go back until I found where I left off. Lately that's been 1000 back, and I just said, Whoa. Time to scale back. LOL I try to comment to everyone, but I don't like leaving 'empty' comments. If I can't think of a reply, I'll just wait and comment on another one. If I tried to comment to all of my friends every day, I'd be waaay overwhelmed. (Especially on dial-up -- it often takes my friends pages FOREVER to load!)

Searches frantically
*whew!* Made the cut! (grinz... was really not worried) I don't know how you do it to be honest. I think you are fabulous at responding. I find it tough, but then most of the time I'm checking in here from work... LOL... What always amazes me is that your responses are sincere and well thought out. Like MrDixon said, you are a great read! :o)..

Mega hugs

Re: Searches frantically
LOL I know you know better than that! ;) I guess I did a poor job of explaining myself. I just tried to drop the journals/communities where I felt I didn't have a real established relationship, that way I can devote more time to all the rest of you guys!

I appreciate all your sweet words. I'm so glad you feel that way!

(of course, you know that such wonderful compliments are always encouraged, but not necessary to stay on my reading list. ;) )

I'm not sure I'm on your personal filter or not but I'd like to be. Also I've been meaning to ask you how you can find out who has posted and what not...I did some searching and couldn't find anything to help me figure out who posts on my blog and who doesn't. I'd really like to filter my friends list too.

Yup, you're on the personal filter. As for the stat thingie, I did it recently here, although I think that was before we met. It's pretty cool. Oddly enough, I've found that some of the folks I feel are really good friends - either through their journals or communities, I guess - have only posted a couple times to my journal. That doesn't bother me at all, but it's fun to 'compete' with the top commenters to try to out-do them on their journals. ;)
