The time has come for many of us to part



How melodramatic of me, but I mean every word in this post. Just in case this post has been missed today, or tomorrow, I will make a link of it and add it for a few days in my future regular posts.

I’ve been giving this much thought for quite a while. I have quite a few people on my FList who have either no interest in their LJs, or who have never commented in my journal, or who have not replied to a comment I’ve left in theirs, or who I just have a feeling that some don’t like me at all.

When I make a post, and those who are so sweet to leave a comment, I try to reply to each one of them. Yes, there have been times where I’ve decided to wait longer to reply to someone’s comment, only because I want to have some time to think of what I will reply, only to find that I’ve waited too long and somehow forgot to do it. I also realize that those who have LJs can’t always write or read their pals posts, because I’ve found myself in the same situation many times, due to stuff I must attend to.

I have left comments, only to find that I have not been acknowledged, and I can understand that, but when it happens twice, or more, then I begin to wonder about that person, and especially when that person replies to all those who commented except me.

A long time ago, I used to make sure I go and send birthday wishes to LJ pals on their birthday, but stopped because there were many times when those people wouldn’t say anything, and sometimes I would go back, only to find that everyone else who left birthday wishes had a thankful reply from that person. You know, I believe it would be so much better to have that person just say “f**** you” instead of my sitting there like a bump on a log.

One thing that REALLY hurt my feelings was when I made a special post inviting you all to see my new site RomanticLove whatever the F****, so you could see pictures of all my animals, and especially the pictures of my little five year old African girl Edith (one in her very first brand new dress, along with the two letters I’ve received) I’ve been sponsoring for over a year. Nobody bothered to take the time to go see her or my own dogs and cats, or the dogs and cats I’ve also sponsored for over a year.

I am going to do some changes on this LJ. I’m going to experiment and change the link I now have, to my Romantic site. I’ll keep an eye to see if it lowers my traffic there (which has pretty good traffic). The way search engines now work, is by how many links from other sites there are on your site. If I find that I’m losing traffic, then I’ll put the site back as a link. I've never made a post in those 20 something, or whaterver communities, and may just post a comment in hopes of finding new LJ friends that I feel are interesting, open minded, believe in our Freedom of Speech, and are still interested in intermingling their thoughts and ideas with others. I’ve given thought also to making this journal FRIENDS ONLY, since I’ll be posting some extremely controversial topics that are on my mind. My mind still gets the sillies sometimes, so I’m sure I’ll be posting some funny Playgirl naughtiness, too.

The time has come for those of you who are reading this, and if the shoe fits, for us to part. I am going to start deleting again a whole bunch of you (one has already been deleted for starters). I really don’t care if I end up with only a handful of LJ pals. At least I do have quite a bit of faithful ones who I appreciate so much, even I have a few rascal who calls me names. I won’t tell you when I do it, and I hope you won’t tell me if you decide to delete me first, because as you and I both know, we’ll find out through our email.

To those I’ll be parting from soon, with all my heart, I wish you the very best life has to offer.

I hope you'll keep me aboard. I know I don't comment too often, but I do enjoy your writings, and your tireless dedication to animals is something I admire very, very much. :)

Your posts are way too interesting for me to get rid of you, and besides, you're my daily newspaper!

I know we're agreeing less and less on politics lately (and I occasionally take long absences) but I still adore you... enough to speak Spanish to you even.

And I don't even speak Spanish!

:D

I'll understand though.

It doesn't matter to me if we differ on politics. Anyway, we've intermingled ever-so-often.

And to think that you suddenly know Spanish, and all for me, and for that the feeling of adoration is mutual! :o)

Even though I am guilty of some of what you say here, I am glad that you wrote this. I appreciate the honesty, and really! I should take a leaf out of your book.

I am sorry for contributing to the hurt feelings. And I am glad that you are back on line!

I'm guilty, also. I haven't been being a good LJ friend by not leaving comments on friend's post, but hopefully I'll now be better.

You have never hurt my feelings, anyway, I'll be shoving my little girl, and oodles of 4-legged babies in yours, and everyone's face, whether you like it or not! heh heh

You are special!

I don't say a lot, but I read your posts. I admire you for what you're doing with your animals. I like that you're a strong woman with opinions and are not afraid to voice them. That's why I friended you and what keeps me reading.

I live in what amounts to civilized chaos between kids, work, and everything in between. So I don't always have time to comment on the journals I read. That being said, if you decide it's time to part ways, best of luck with all of your endeavors =)

How I envy you for having the biggest, most precious treasures of all; children! They're luck, too, for having such a tough, and beautiful mom. I've seen your pic! :o)

Hugs Sweet Pie!

I have to apologize for being so quiet, but I'd appreciate it if you left me on. I read every post you make, and I still aspire to meet you someday.

You know I'll always have you. How in the world could I ever delete into oblivion a gorgeous babe like you.

As for meeing, nothing is impossible. Someday.

You know I love you and always check up on you. I don't always comment because politics is one of those subjects that generally opens up a Pandora's Box for me and I end up getting too involved in the debate, and I try not to get involved as a result. I hope you keep me around

I know what you mean, because many times I'll just read posts made by some and find I can't contribute much.

I hope you know I feel the same about you.

Don't apologize. I understand that we live in a busy crazy world. You are among those who reads and comments when possible, and I always appreciate it.

I hope you realize ...
I've never forgotten our talks, or especially that thing you once wrote about our friendship. I even made a special page in my romantic site, in the friendship section for it. Don't worry, because as much as I wanted to show off your talent for writing, I didn't use your name. I would never do something like that, unless I had your permission.

I hope you realize I find you a most talented writer, and special guy.

Close to 100 will soon be smited (is there such a word?). I love eye candy, and you will NOT be deleted!

Yes, I am amongst the many who probably don't comment much. I'll admit that there are some life changes that have prevented me from commenting more, though I do make an effort to read as much as I can.

It is your virtual home of sorts, and right of you to make as you see fit.

I'm tempted to be silent just to prove a point. I can't be arsed to comment when issued an ultimatum. I might just clam up on principle. :)

Sometimes I feel comments just add to the echo chamber effect. Now I pretty much limit commenting to when I feel I can add something useful. I still read everything.

And here I echo paulpomes
My original statement nearly to the letter when we became friends was I always read but I don't often post. I try to comment if I feel I have something worthwhile to add to conversation. During our friendship I have chimed in on occassion. In the end as I have always said, be true to you. That is your only obligation.
