Thanks for the comment, Rob. I unfollow only if the relationship is abusive (name calling etc.). So far I have only blocked a few family members.

I started blogging back when Radio Userland was hot software and used Blogger for a bit before switching to WordPress in 2005.

I keep doing it because of a 2014 article, DO NOT BUILD YOUR BRAND HOUSE ON LAND YOU DON’T OWN, by John Battelle.

If you’re going to build something, don’t build on land someone else already owns. You want your own land, your own domain, your own sovereignty.
