Posts tagged and I'm unfortunately not made of money
Due to the fact that most of my design work is computer/internet based and I’ll often meet with clients, I have portable internet. This means I pay for bandwidth. I have a certain amount of bandwidth alloted for a set monthly price and pay additionally for anything that goes over.
Tumblr has an addiction to my bandwidth. And that’s a problem. Especially when my monthly bill is three times what it should be.
Every time I load my dash, my check book cries.
I’ve found it’s much easier for me to check the blogs I frequent once every couple of days on that blog, rather than have it load multiple times on my dash.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I’m going to have to unfollow some people. That doesn’t mean I harbour any ill feelings toward you. I understand that some equate ‘following’ to ‘friendship’, but I’ve never exclusively felt that way. I follow blogs that I am most likely to reblog. I have friends that I don’t follow and vice versa, but they’re still friends. I also follow several blogs of people I don’t even know, let alone call them friends.
As people’s interests change over time, some of the blogs that I originally found interesting, I no longer do. People change; that’s perfectly fine. The ways in which they’ve changed just may not jive with what I now find interesting. (On the flip side, I gain and lose followers every day and never take it personally.)
So if I used to follow you and no longer do, don’t fret about it. I don’t dislike you in any way. I’m not shunning you. Either our interests have diverged, or I literally can’t afford your current brand of awesome. :)
When my current bandwidth contract runs out, my situation may change. I’m just posting this to waylay any potential hurt feelings. It’s not my intent and I hope that you all understand.
