I had an extraordinary number of journals on my friends list who hadn't updated for anything from 6 months up to 3 years!
I've also removed a couple of people whose journals I really don't read. It's nothing personal.
If someone feels that I've removed them in error, let me know... but other than that, I haven't removed anyone that I know would be unhappy or surprised if I did! :o)
That means I'm down to 150 friends, 55 communities and 8 syndicated feeds listed. Total 213. I think I was on 260-something!
