When I spend time away from LJ, sometimes it’s hard getting back in the swing of things. There are days when I skim my Friends page but don’t write any comments because I don’t have time to comment on every journal and want to be “fair,” but then if a couple days go by without me commenting I get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of uncommented posts and I can’t figure out when/where to start commenting again in a way that won’t hurt feelings until more days go by without comments from me. (And yes, I realize it’s my unique brand of neurosis to worry that anyone on LJ sits around keeping score on which person comments when/where).
Anyone else willing to admit to this kind of LJ Overwhelm? If so, how do you handle it?
(And if not, please keep the ridicule to a low roar….)
