I love the flexibility that allow everyone to make Live Journal what they want it to be for them. I enjoy reading about people's daily lives and their routine goings on. But lately I've found that about half of my friends feed is stuff I just scroll by and ignore.
I'm not a fan of fan fiction or memes or reading answers to stock questions that even the answerers don't really enjoy. I totally get why people build their journals around those things and love reading them by other people, I'm just not one of those people.
Because my journal is public, my removing people from my friends list will have no impact on anyone else's friends list. I also get that many people believe that Live Journal is a two way street or no street at all. So my actions will cause reactions of being removed from access to the locked journals of others. Thanks for letting me in for a while.
