You know I'm not exactly a die hard LiveJournal user. I enjoy reading other peoples entries and I sometimes come on here and jot down things that are happening in my life and sometimes how I feel about things that are happening in other peoples lives. The one thing I just can't seem to understand is people who get pissed because others don't comment in their journals. Yeah...it's nice to know people are reading...but it's not something that's going to change my life. I can see where having someone on your friends list and then having them just drop off the face of the planet could be annoying...but I'm not saying anyone has to keep me on their friends lists. I just want to read a journal that I enjoy now and then.

Another thing...there are quite a few journals that I enjoy certain aspects of...but not the whole darned thing. I have one person who writes about cooking and sports...which I follow to some extent...but the political posts I just graze through. Some people I try to skim through and if something seems interesting I'll read the whole thing. There a a few people who I've just let know that I read their journals but don't even have an interest being on their friends list because quite frankly I think my journal would bore them to tears. If they add me they do...if they don't I'm not going to throw a fit.

In short...it just amazes me how obsessive some people get over a website. I have weird quirks too though...so I can be too harsh. Just something that baffles my brain is all.

*disclaimer* This post isn't directed at anyone. It's just that this issue seems to keep coming up more and more and I just wanted to make a "mental note" of it if you will.

Also...I'm trying to get in the habit of putting subjects on my entries. It's a mess to go back and try to find that one entry without having any subjects I've discovered.

I enjoy reading your posts even though sometimes I don't have time to respond to them...:)

Awwww...I don't want people to feel pressured to comment. That's just it. Some people threaten every other week to defriend people because they don't comment. I'd rather have people just sit back and read rather than post the obligatory "that sux" or "awwwww...sorry" in my journal and clog up my inbox...you know?

You know what I think? That Sux!

Sorry, couldn't resist. But I agree with the general point of your post completely, I've had a few abrasive conversations over the lack of LJ posting, and I've always told people to fuck off. It's my journal, I'll write what I want when I want, and you should too.
