Anyway... back to what I was trying to say. (see how easily I am pulled from thought to thought. LOL) I feel that many of the blogger's I follow are kind of like "family". I have been following some of you guys for years. How in the world could I just delete you from my life? It's truly like a family in a way. And my "family" just keeps growing and growing. I suppose I could delete some who have not posted anything in awhile. But then I think.... what if they come back? What if something has happened to them and they just weren't able to check in and let us know? It's happened before.
Someone won't post for a few months and it turns out that there has been some big "thing" that has been going on. Or they weren't able to access a computer for awhile. I would feel just terrible to have deleted them out of my "blogger life". The only thing that I have come up with is to delete those who haven't posted in over a year. I know.... I should have a firmer rule of thumb. But its the only one that I feel comfortable with. I figure that if after a year you haven't written anything then you have probably moved on to bigger and better things. At least in my mind!
Now you would think (or I do anyway) that following all those blogs would be quite enough. Heck, to be honest, sometimes I just don't have the time to keep up with it all. Inevitably, when that happens, I find that someone has had some disaster happen and I just feel terrible about not at least saying a prayer for them when it was needed. That may sound silly to some of you but.... hey...that's just the way I am. Hmmm.. what was I talking about? Oh yes.... I remember now.
I once again tried to cut down on some of "my" blogs and once again it was quite impossible for me to hit the delete button. Not only that, while trying to make those decisions, I found a couple more of them to follow. STOP LAUGHING. Can I help it if I like all these folks?
I give up. Who am I trying to kid? I could no more hit the delete button on most of you any more than I could just give up on someone in my own family.
