I am in the middle of my annual WordPress purge here. This is the time of the year when I go through all of the followers that I have and those who follow me and see which accounts are still active. Sometimes I am surprised at the results, but I learned to keep sentiment out of this a long time ago when the list of followers and those I followed just got too unwieldy. I prefer to keep a streamlined list of people who I know are active, and particularly those who interact with me. Occasionally I will delete someone who likes to comment on my blog but seldom writes anything themselves. I try to keep those people from being purged, but mistakes do happen.
I wonder why I am explaining this to those who will read it because after all, you survived the WordPress purge.
