Is it inappropriate to purge subscribers?

I have over 250 people that are subscribed to me… but probably less than 20 actual readers.  I enjoy writing, but I find myself writing less and less because I get caught up in thinking, “no one wants to hear about that.”  I don’t like that feeling. 

I am going to clear all of my subscribers unless requested otherwise.  I want to write more, and I’d feel better about it this way.

*************************

I go back to work tomorrow.  My first day will be 8 hours long.  I’ve cried twice today, but I know things will be okay.  They have to be.

    Sometimes you just have to purge.  A woman with an eating disorder taught me that valuable lesson.

    PURGE ’em! 

    K, so here’s what I did on my first day ‘back to work’… i had a little stuffed dino that he LOVED…it smelled like him…I kept it in my pocket, and just knowing that little ‘lump’ was connected to him was enough to keep the tears at bay. 
    It dosen’t get any easier, I’ve learned…something that no one could have ever told me before I ventured out into the deep sea of Motherhood…just can’t ‘xplain it. 

    YOU will be fine…and so will he, you’re right, it has to be.  :)

    I do feel for ya tho, just so you know…you’re not alone…us Momma’s who work…we have to really suck it up and put on a brave face hey.  I’ll be thinkin about cha tomorrow kiddo…so will your little man.

    You need to do what is best for you, after all this is a place for self expression…be yourself.

    Please don’t purge me! I think it was great that you mentioned it. I look forward to reading your posts- random or otherwise. I’m not a mother yet so I can’t relate to the emotions you are going through but I send you positive vibes every time! 

    Good luck tomorrow! I’m sure it will only get easier with time. Besides, it’ll make the time you do spend with lil’ Ronan that much more precious.

    *watches outpouring of support with vague amusement*  I’m part of it; still here, still reading.  :)  I don’t comment very much because I don’t know you personally, and I always feel like Xanga is more for personal connections, but you are consistently one of the best bloggers I have ever run across.

    Keep me!  Keep me!

    I just had my first day of work too.  Let me know how it goes!

    First and foremost, write about what YOU want to write about.  If you find it interesting, you will probably write about it in a way that those of us reading you will find interesting as well.

    And I hope the first day back on the job is going well.  I’m guessing that Ronan is taking it a lot better than you are.

    And yes, I want to stay subscribed to you.
