Someone I’ve been blogging buddies with for 3 – 4 years just unfollowed me (on Twitter — I don’t know about here on WordPress yet because I can’t keep track of who is following me and who is not so for now, that will remain a mystery).
I’m more hurt than I expected to be, since my friend and I hadn’t spoken in some time. There was never a falling-out or disagreement or parting of the ways (that I know of), but we just sort of lost contact. I noticed some time ago that she stopped commenting and even Liking my posts. I did know she was very busy with her family, and writing a book too. At the same time, I started getting politically involved and the focus of my blog changed along with that. Maybe that’s what the problem is. It’s not that my friend disagrees with my feelings because I don’t think she does, but I think politics is just an area she doesn’t like to focus on (and I can’t say I blame her for that, if that’s what it is). But, I’m not sure that’s what it is. It could be anything really.
I don’t know. I’m kind of hurt, so I sent her a DM asking why she unfollowed me, because I really would like to know. I valued our friendship, even though I wasn’t that great about keeping in touch or answering messages promptly. Maybe she unfollowed me by accident — it does happen sometimes. Since she still has an active blog and a Twitter account, I know it isn’t one of those cases of “disappearing friends” that suddenly are just gone and you have no idea what happened to them or even if they are still alive.
If you are reading this and you know this is you I’m referring to, drop me a DM or an email please?
