The purge: What happens when you unfollow everyone on the Internet
Helena Price

Funny, I came across this article because I’m looking to do the same. I’ve experienced all of the same negatives, though I don’t have but a few followers, and I never tried to curate any following. But I decided I spend too much time blogging responses to posted articles, and in my mind analyzing and arguing points about this and that, even when I wake up in the middle of the night.

And coincidentally, like the author I’m a lifelong techie and photographer, now pushing my career to the latter as it goes deeper into my soul. (Father a notable L.A. photographer and lab owner, I’ve been shooting since I was 5. Much more fun than working in tech, even though my tech has been all about film & video.) Now I’m beginning to be more clear in my thinking, getting more done that I want and need to do, and not thinking about influencing other people’s opinions which is next to impossible to do anyway.
