Apparently, on Blogger, one can only follow 300 blogs. I tried to add a new one this morning and was notified that I would have to delete one in order to add the newest addition.
The thing is, some of the blogs I've followed in the past no longer exist and I just hadn't gotten around to taking them off my follow list.
So, just because I "followed" 300 blogs doesn't mean I read 300 blogs a day. Probably a good number of those don't do daily or sometimes, even a monthly post. I tried to be conservative on the unfollowing and tried to make sure I only deleted the ones I knew for sure had no activity whatsoever and had most likely been deleted.
Trust me, if you are a regular blogger, you made the cut. I only deleted 44. And, I even kept the ones who haven't been posting for a while, but I know they're on hiatus for a bit.
Still, it's kinda sad to let go. I've made lots of friends (both IRL and online) through blogging. I've had the good fortune to meet many out of state bloggers when they travel through West Virginia. It's sad to see someone "drop off the grid".
But, I am thankful to know all these people through the years. I hope to meet many more in the future!
If nothing else, I want to be one of your 300. One of the 300 possible blogs you follow. I don't mean I WANT 300 followers, I just want to be on your list! :-)
Now it's time to bust out the leftovers and eat more. I hope you all had a wonderful and FULL Thanksgiving day! Enjoy your Friday (and long weekend)!
