    Too Much Information

    I'm having a hard time keeping up with my circle. There are some who I'm in regular contact with and others I haven't communicated with for ages. I can relate to a face just fine but icons/avatars seem too detached and I get them confused. I get people's details &...

    Mea Copa Friends

    I get caught up with one or two threads and forget others. I don't mean to slight anyone. Those who take the time to commit on my post/thread deserve the same...DD

    It's Getting Harder Too

    When I go offline and then come back online one of the first things I do is check my circles recent activity. It's really hard to keep up with it all though since some people do some many things that all the old activity gets pushed off the page lol. Sometimes the whole thing is...

    I just get so busy reading stories and answering them that I sometimes log out and forget to say hi to all of my good friends I have met here....

    I'm sorry but when you are talking 50+ friends, trying to keep up with them all is all but impossible unless you are a computer savvy octopus. Seriously, I got about 80 or so on my circle. I can't keep up!! I do the best job of being a friend but you got to tell me if you need...

    I'm not really on here enough to keep up with my circle. In a way it seems a bit shabby, but in another way at least I'm not stalking them.

    I Do Try

    I know there are a lot of people in my circle but I believe we can never have enough friends. Besides, who knows why we were brought together... I mean there has to be a reason. I do have trouble keeping up with the EP world but mostly because I like to write...

    : ( Yeah, It's Mostly My Own Fault ) :

    I spend so much time on here writing stories, trying to make sure I answer comments & PMs that it is rare that I get to check on my circle & see what they are writing about. What they are feeling.... I feel really bad too, but I am trying to do better. Hang in there guys...

    I do indeed have trouble, why? Not enough hours in the day, and also, tons of stories to add.

    Not More Than 50

    I agree with some of what is written here, I think once you go above a certain number it does become impossible. Some people have 500 to 1,000 people in there's it seems ridiculous to have that many "friends". I think once you get above 30 it becomes tricky. Its just...

    Some of you post stories faster than I can read them much less comment on them.  Have patience with me as I work my way through.  I love my circle dearly, but there is just not enough hours in a week to keep up.

    I Have a Slow Link

    And I am not on line as I used to be, and my circle is really active! so I have the same trouble. If there is a solution, I would love to know.
