Okay, more like a little summer house keeping!
Just giving a heads up that at some point soon (like in the next week or so), I will be trimming the FL a little bit. If you post regularly in your own journal, or comment occasionally in mine, you don't have to worry about anything. But for those of you who either don't post either in your own journal or comment in mine, while I am flattered that you find my life so interesting, if you can't even comment once in a while, or post in your own journal, you probably won't make the cut. Sorry, but I don't journal simply to provide entertainment value for someone else, so if that's what you are getting out of being on my FL, you'll have to get it somewhere else. There are plenty of public blogs out there that serve that purpose.
Like I said, consider this your fair warning of changes taking place in about a week or so. This post is being made public, but all comments are being screened.
It's that time of year again. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that at some point really soon, I'm going to do a little spring cleaning of my FL. Especially if you haven't posted in your journal, haven't posted in mine, or if it appears that we have grown apart or don't have a lot in common anymore. No one should take any of this personally if/when it does happen. People change, circumstances change, and I'd like to keep my FL at a number that is manageable for me. I'm not sure exactly when this is going to happen, but just letting you all know it's something I've been thinking about, no offense to anyone intended.
No need to reply to this post either, but if you feel the need, I think I have it set up so that comments are screened and will be seen only by me.
Apparently, as I just found out, this week is National Delurking Week. In fact, the second week of every January has designated as such. Who came up with the idea, I have no clue. But basically, the idea behind National Delurking Week is that anyone who has been "lurking" in your journal (reading but not posting), is invited to come out and reveal themselves to you by posting in your journal. Since my journal is a friends only journal, if you have found your way here somehow and would like access, please reply to this post by telling me who you are and how I know you--in real life, via message board, friend of a friend, whatever, and I'll make my decisions accordingly.
I have finally decided that its time to start an on-line journal to chronicle the goings on in my life. However, the majority of the journal entries will be friends only. So if you know me, either IRL or from some other website, either PM me, e-mail me, or post a reply in the first post of this journal and tell me who you are and how/where I know you and I will add you in! For those of you whose friend's lists I am already on, or whose journals I've regularly posted in, I've friended you already! I hope you'll all bear with me while I figure out all the quirks of LJ!
PS. If you've been wondering about the title of the journal, wonder no more. It's a lyric from the Beatles "With a Little Help From My Friends", which I thought most appropriate for the title of my journal!
