I absolutely don't mind spending my time doing this, I just worry about my limited Abyssea time. For whatever reason people seem pretty lazy in low man seal parties. I think it's because those players have been around for awhile and have stones to burn. There's no sense of urgency to keep TE's flowing.
Look Broseph Mengele, if you have limited Abyssea time, then your first focus should be to max your abyssea time. 3 stones per day x 33 min gives you obviously... 99 min per day to kill NMs and do quests to get you 40+. If you can't get a group going by shout, then just do dominion for exp/merits/skill/gil to get your jobs ready to go, and work on finding friends/an ls to kill the mobs.
The mobs are not hard. Getting pops is slightly hard. As I said dominion is 2 fold... you get free random seals [I've gotten 5/8 on 3 hands for jobs, and 5/10 on 3 bodies for jobs just from dominion.] The NM's are not hard. The pop items are slightly hard to acquire, but again, not particularly difficult. They are much less hard to acquire than say... diorite 2 years ago.
Again the main point is that if you have limited time you should maximize it. Either find 1)an LS, or better yet 2) an LS of a few friends, and do all of this BS together.
