I always feel odd doing this becuase so many people feel they *must* reciprocate.
They don't. I just want to read your public entries becuase something caught my eye.
No need to feel the same about me.
Also, I'm exceedingly capricious.
So it stands to reason that in 3 weeks I may find what you have to say pretty boring and don't want it cluttering up my friends page. It isn't personal. In *no way* is it personal. I'm just not in the mood to read what you've got to say at the time.
The "friends list" is horribly named.
I like the think of it as my "linked to" page... or "journals of interest" page ... it's my own little easy access links page, that's all.
Of course, there are some people on my friends list that I honestly dig as people and as writers.
But that's just a co-winky-dink.
