Today I was going through my feedly looking to see what was up with some of my closer bloggy friends*. I'm that person who thinks I haven't seen you in a week or two, and it's been more like a month or two...or a year or two. I'm the one who, when I read a post that starts "Remember me?" or "Sorry I've been away for so long," thinks "has it been a while since you posted?
As it turns out, there are people in my feed who haven't posted in 341 days, or 427, or 481, or 800, or 921. I should probably give up on them, right? But I can't. What if they come back and no one notices? There are a couple of women who stopped blogging probably three or so years into my blogging journey (twelve years now and counting) and I still want to know what's happened to them!
But then Teri of Chocolates for Breakfast posted after 500 days! She has taught me to hope! How am I supposed to turn my back on those others now?
So I was wondering when do you let people go?
*I'm an introvert. You probably don't even know I think of you as a bloggy friend.
